In a four-part series, FTI Consulting’s Strategic Communications experts delve deeper into how, specifically, organizations and management teams can ACTION their ESG efforts to remain ahead of the curve and best equipped to weather any storms in the future.
There is no doubt that we live in a dynamic, evolving and unpredictable world – and COVID-19 has made it all the more real. Today’s investors are being confronted with tougher investment decisions and more complex risk profiles, both of which they need to analyse when choosing which assets to invest in. And when making these decisions, ESG investment considerations are increasingly taking centre stage.
