As companies adapt to a ‘new normal’ way of operating, it’s more important than ever to understand how investors are thinking and to be actively and constructively engaging with them and other stakeholders. At this critical time, institutional investors are particularly focused on seeing robust ESG risk management. Whilst these investors expect that ESG risks and opportunities are addressed as a matter of standard business practice and long-term financial performance, response to COVID-19 undoubtedly has material near-term implications that need to be taken into consideration by companies and their Boards.
