Each year we publish a series of articles to accompany the industry results contained in the Yearbook. This year’s edition of The Sustainability Yearbook focuses on social capital issues — the “S” in ESG. Sandwiched between Environmental and Governance — “S”, which measures sustainability’s social dimension, is sometimes overshadowed by the attention afforded to its sustainability siblings. This is perhaps understandable given the devastating impact of environmental pollution and the climate crisis on a global scale (measured by E), combined with a preference of the investment community for metrics that focus on company leadership, board oversight and executive compensation (measured by G). But the significance of the social dimension in sustainability investing is rapidly escalating. This past year especially, social sustainability issues have grabbed their fair share of headlines.
