Cynthia emphasizes that as we move forward, ESG focus will become even more critical for corporate innovation and success:
"ESG will be critically important, and it won't be just important in terms of how it correlates with financial short term performance, but it will really be important in terms of anticipating the changes that companies are going to deal with that are escalating. With the rapid rate of change socially and environmentally, ESG becomes a way for companies to stay ahead, to compete, and to perform."
