Emerging markets and ESG: The challenge, the response and the opportunity.
The carbon-based model of industrialisation is coming to an end.
Emerging market governments have the opportunity to become trailblazers for the next era, one where ESG will play a pivotal role. Indeed, I believe ESG in emerging markets has become the key investment case.
“Without meaningful improvement in a wide variety of environmental and social goals, progress on the more traditional economic indicators will become impossible.”
The good news is that many EM governments are already aware of and embracing this challenge.
The stars are aligning for an upsurge in ESG-related investment in emerging markets.
