ESG Prediction And Trends For 2024



Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) factors have become increasingly important in the business world as companies strive to establish sustainable, ethical, and responsible practices. The year 2024 is significant because it marks the deadline for meeting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), 17 global goals designed to address the world’s most pressing social, economic, and environmental challenges.

The SDGs are the most used structure for reporting on sustainability. The Sustainable Development Goals are a globally agreed and accepted framework of practice with clearly defined indicators and targeted recommendations that enable an impartial evaluation of the Sustainable Development Goals’ criteria. ESG ( Environmental, Social, and Governance) is ineffective in measuring the sustainability of development, it has so many subjective interpretations of the concept of sustainability, and certain activities are difficult to quantify. There is no global definition or standardized metrics for ESG, with assessments based on ownership models. It is also not goal- or process-oriented, which encourages corporate greenwashing.

Predictions Of 2024

The year 2024 is a maelstrom of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) development. As climate change intensifies and social inequality persists, investors and stakeholders demand more than green promises – they want measurable impacts and responsible action. This year, ESG is not a distant niche but a central force shaping corporate strategies and investment decisions.

ESG issues are becoming an optional part of every company's strategy, critical to creating sustainable value. As ESG enters the mainstream despite challenges, here are predictions of what the landscape is likely to witness in 2024. The landscape of sustainable development continues to evolve. Faced with geopolitical uncertainty and sluggish economic growth in 2024, organizations are likely to witness a range of issues that continue to impact ESG and sustainability strategies. ESG will become an essential part of every business strategy in 2024. In 2018, organizations will witness a shift where ESG factors are deeply embedded in their core strategy. Companies are increasingly recognizing sustainable practices as essential for reputation management and long-term profitability. ESG integration is becoming natural, influencing decision-making processes in all sectors. Standardized ESG metrics will matter in 2024. The abundance of reporting frameworks available makes it a challenge for investors and stakeholders to compare ESG performance across organizations. Industry leaders are beginning to work together to create a common set of ESG metrics to simplify reporting transparency.

Trends Of ESG In 2024

Here are some of the biggest trends in sustainable development and impact investing in 2024 that are expected to contribute to the achievement of the Environmental, Social and Governance goals (ESGs) by 2030:

  • Alignment with the Sustainable Development Goals

There is an increasing focus on aligning ESG and impact investment strategies with the goals set out in the sustainable development goals. Investors are increasingly looking for investments that help them achieve their goals 

  • Evolution of Greenwashing Claims

By 2024, the concept of greenwashing is a term used to evoke misleading sustainability efforts and claims which is likely to be legally defined and have more serious consequences.  Greenwashing involves reputational, regulatory, and litigation issues, and without a consistent legal definition, the concept of greenwashing varies across products, services, and jurisdictions. At the same time, significant progress has also been made in eliminating greenwashing, developing new rules to limit false advertising, and providing consumers with better information. 

  • Biodiversity acts as a top-tier ESG 

Although the topic of biodiversity loss increased last year, this trend is expected to continue in 2024. Nature and cultivation were included in the global deforestation targets of 2030 at the Cop28 global environment conference in December. In addition, the number and assets of investment funds focusing on biodiversity and nature are growing rapidly. The resources managed in the European funds are exclusively aimed at biological diversity.

  • “E” and “S” supply chains 

Several recent laws have required Scope reporting, encouraging organizations to prioritize ethical sourcing, fair labor standards, and initiatives to reduce environmental demand throughout the supply chain. Supply chains are emerging at the intersection of environmental and social concerns, and the development is likely to accelerate in 2024

  • Financial Inclusion

Investments in financial inclusion, such as microfinance and fintech solutions, should increase and aim to provide financial services to underserved populations. Performance investing and sustainable finance will continue to grow in 2024 as investors seek to align their portfolios with their values. ESG factors play an important role in investment decision-making in due diligence for both public companies and private equity. The importance of financial instruments for sustainable development, such as green bonds and sustainability bonds, is increasing, which encourages companies to adopt green practices. The inclusion of ESG criteria in investment strategies directs capital to sustainable companies and creates positive feedback for companies committing to ESG principles.

  • Advancement in Technology in Reporting ESG 

Advances in technology are revolutionizing ESG reporting, making it more efficient and accurate. Companies are adopting innovative software and tools to improve data collection, analysis, and reporting processes. Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning algorithms enable automatic aggregation of data, identification of ESG risks, and prediction of outcomes. Blockchain technology improves the transparency and traceability of supply chains and ensures the authenticity of sustainability claims. These technological advances allow companies to make decisions from data and demonstrate their commitment to ESG practices.

  • Deeper Integration with the Company’s Balance Sheet

As climate-related financial disclosure becomes mandatory, CFOs and financial regulators will have an even more important role in ESG initiatives. In the future, the concept of “responsible” emissions will appear, making risks and liabilities more visible on the balance sheet and forcing many companies, especially in the oil industry, to calculate future emissions taxes and consider the disadvantages of fossil fuel production. ESG team works with finance and risk management teams to determine internal carbon prices and prepare for a more regulated carbon environment. Transparent and sustainable supply chains are also important when trying to reduce emissions i.e. indirect emissions in the value chain of a company.

In 2024, companies will start taking environmental, social, and Governance measures seriously, showing that ESG is finally here to stay. While it is true that ESG trends began with the growing need for organizations to comply with regulations and mitigate risks, the year 2024 will force organizations to fundamentally reform their business structures.

Companies adopt ESG criteria not only for compliance or risk management but also to fundamentally change their business models. By achieving a full understanding and acceptance of need and responsibility, they can identify increasingly complex external risks across functions. By reforming planning processes, financial management, and marketing practices, organizations can address many ESG issues. At the same time, ESG is moving from a peripheral component to a central part of successful business strategies.

These trends highlight a growing understanding of the role that ESG and investing can play in achieving sustainability goals, which may change over time. The ultimate value of ESG investing depends on whether it encourages companies to drive real change for the common good or simply check boxes and publish reports. This depends on investment flows following realistic, measurable, and actionable ESG principles.
