Capital Group | Pandemic, war and climate change sharpen focus on ESG


While COVID-19 helped accelerate the ESG agenda, the tragic invasion of Ukraine is likely to further speed up its evolution.

The pandemic shone a spotlight on the S – or social issues – of ESG. Two years on, the conflict in Ukraine has brought the G, governance component, to investors’ attention. At the same time, a growing understanding of the implications and importance of climate change has meant that E continues to dominate investors ESG focus.

These insights and many more surfaced in Capital Group’s annual ESG global study published in May 2022. Collecting views from more than 1,100 institutional and wholesale investment professionals across Europe, North America and Asia-Pacific, the study showed ESG trends continue to gain traction.
