Industries Leading the World in ESG
According to the study, 32 percent of all respondents believe that renewables and clean energy yield the highest ROI today, and the same number believe this will be true for 2030—the highest value for any investment area.
But investors may be too focused on the most obvious ESG investments, and could be missing an opportunity to take a more holistic approach to sustainable investing.
At 27 percent, ESG fund managers see the highest ROI opportunity today in Financial Services, compared to 10 percent of Chief Sustainability Officers, 7 percent of government officials, and 13 percent of non-ESG fund managers.
Venture capital leaders stand out for their confidence in Life Sciences Tools and Services (16 percent) and Mobility (10 percent).
