Here are 17 long-term focus points - not short-term trends - spanning ESG, climate change, and sustainability that the world needs to work towards in 2023 for achieving economically viable sustainable development by 2030
2022 has undoubtedly been a tumultuous year - from COVID, to conflict, to the climate crisis. However, the challenges still remain, and while it’s great to be optimistic for 2023, it is wise to understand that we need to be practical. Solutions to tackle these prevailing challenges will not appear on their own - we need immediate action.
Climate change is the most pressing issue of our time. It is a global phenomenon that can impact every sector of society and economy. The world needs to be more aware of this issue, and we need to find solutions for it as soon as possible. On the other hand, ESG stands for Environmental, Social, and Governance. These are the three key areas that are being looked at by investors to make sure that they are investing in a sustainable way. In order to invest responsibly, one must consider these three aspects of the company they are investing in.
The world is not taking the issue of climate change and the need for sustainability seriously, and it's time for that to change. Politicians need to take the issue more seriously and start enacting regulations on industries that produce greenhouse gases. Individuals should also be more conscious about their carbon footprint. We need to fix this problem before it's too late.
That’s why we’ve put together a checklist of 17 long-term focus points - not short-term trends - spanning ESG, climate change, and sustainability that the world needs to work towards faster and extra hard in 2023 for achieving economically viable sustainable development by 2030 while factoring in the loss of progress brought about by the unprecedented circumstances of 2022.
