What the evolving landscape of ESG means for fraud and insolvency practitioners
The recognition of ESG issues, and the establishment of a coherent ESG strategy, are increasingly important for businesses and government bodies alike. Reputational considerations and the threat of court litigation will require organisations to embed ESG into their operations in order to survive and stay competitive. However, a failure to consider ESG issues may lead to the restructuring or demise of a company. And the rise of ESG on the corporate agenda and the pressure that entails will mean that instances of ESG-related fraud will inevitably increase.
