The state of ESG strategic integration in JSE listed companies

Risk Insights is proud to unveil our latest collaborative report with Henley Business School - Africa, delving into the STATE OF ESG STRATEGIC INTEGRATION IN JSE LISTED COMPANIES. Explore the report here. This report comes off from a comprehensive survey of 63 JSE-listed companies, with 70% boasting annual sales exceeding 3.8 billion pounds across diverse industries. Our report is more than a document; it's an exploration into:

I. Strategic integration, not a mere checkbox but a nuanced internal capability-building exercise, seasoned with surprise moves to elevate ESG performance.
II. Boards in the driver's seat of strategy development, not just players but game-changers navigating towards a greater realm of ESG strategic change.
III. A spotlight on "social" initiatives, where boards prioritize diversity, working conditions, pay, and community development, venturing even into the realm of local enterprise development.
