Responsibility for corporate environmental, social, and governance (ESG) programs increasingly belongs to corporate social responsibility (CSR) and sustainability teams, according to The Morningstar Sustainalytics Corporate ESG Survey Report 2022. The survey asked 556 CSR and sustainability professionals around the world (168 from the Americas) about the challenges they’re facing and how they’re dealing with them.
In this supplement, we share additional findings from the survey on how CSR and sustainability teams in the Americas are managing ESG programs and how their responses on key ESG topics compare to the world.
We looked at two other regions in this supplement series: Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA), and Asia-Pacific (APAC). Click here to find them.
