ESG in the new world order
October 6 @ 2:00 pm - 2:40 pm BST
The Russian invasion of Ukraine has accelerated the move towards a new world order, a multipolar one. In physical and digital terms. It will feature independent regional economies where Western-led rules no longer apply in large parts of the world. These rules include ESG. It is reasonable to expect that this will make it even more difficult to coordinate global responses to challenges such as climate change. The invasion also raised new questions about ESG, including whether it really makes sense to bundle together sometimes contradictory goals.
