The important questions hang in the air – what changes are in store for corporate managers and investment professionals as a result of many critical trends emerging that are shaping corporate reputations, brands, freedom to operate, the relationship of investor to companies, in regulatory affairs, stock exchange listing changes…and more, much more?

Hank Boerner, Chairman of G&A Institute, prepared a series of commentaries beginning late in 2015 and early in the year 2016 to “…take a look ahead of the curve on ESG / Sustainability / CR / SRI . Corporate Citizenship trends that were converging.”  

These are the important trends that were looking very positive for corporate sustainability and responsibility managers and investment professionals who are focused on sustainability and related topics & issues.

Many of the trends have fully “blossomed” into powerful forces that affect both the corporate sector and the investment management community, and other areas of society.

In 2017 and into 2018 we did find ourselves at times in a “sea of uncertainty” for certain of the trends (such as the United States participation in the Paris Agreement on climate change) -- and professionals are looking for guidance and accurate information on “where we are.”
