Q1, 2023 ISSUE OUT NOW

The influence of environmental, social and governance (ESG) concerns on business leadership has grown dramatically in recent years. Now, ESG is reshaping the business landscape, as consumers seek ethical choices, investors channel finance to more sustainable firms, employees demand that their organizations reflect their personal values, and politicians seek to reshape corporate behaviour.

Our Focus section in this issue of Dialogue examines how ESG thinking can provide a framework for leaders to navigate this new world – and how they can guide their organizations through the new context. What does ESG mean for existing businesses models, and how should corporations rethink their approach to creating value over the long-term – and delivering social benefit? How can leaders reconcile competing priorities, and accelerate change in the social dimension to create workplaces where unequal treatment on the basis of gender, race and ethnicity is eliminated?
