The 2020 edition of the OECD Business and Finance Outlook focuses on sustainable and resilient finance, in particular the environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors that are rapidly becoming a part of mainstream finance. It evaluates current ESG practices, and identifies priorities and actions to better align investments with sustainable, long-term value – especially the need for more consistent, comparable and available data on ESG performance.
The COVID-19 pandemic has further highlighted the urgent need to consider resilience in finance, both in the financial system itself and in the role played by capital and investors in making economic and social systems more dynamic and able to withstand external shocks.
The launch event brought together senior representatives and thought leaders from government, business, academia and the media to discuss what governments and businesses can and should be doing to drive more sustainable and resilient outcomes in finance, for the COVID-19 recovery and beyond.
