Notably, 2021 marked significant collective progress as Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) hit the mainstream. Accompanying the growing focus of initiatives aimed toward target setting and improved assessment and measurement of ESG plans, acute attention is now focused on addressing rapid decarbonization, deforestation, energy efficiency, and other critical impacts of businesses’ value chains.
