ESG and the Corporate End User: Measuring Engagement in North America and Europe

Commercial financial services are well-positioned to assist clients in pursuing ESG objectives.

February 7, 2023 – Environmental, social, and corporate governance initiatives are gaining momentum within the corporate sector. Although once seen as a form of “greenwashing,” the last several years have seen a shift toward measurable ESG outcomes in the private sector. Momentum for ESG has accelerated most rapidly in “green investing” and within retail practices, both of which have been in response to investor and consumer demands, alongside the recognition that ESG-related investments can create enormous business opportunities.

This report provides granular data on corporate end users in North America and Europe, focusing specifically on current knowledge and demand of ESG initiatives, which enables a comprehensive portrait of opportunities and challenges in the commercial ESG landscape. It utilizes recently acquired data from Aite-Novarica Group’s Commercial Banking & Payments flagship survey of over 790 organizations in North America and western Europe.
