Overview

The urgency to protect the environment has given rise to one of the most powerful calls to action the world has ever seen. It’s a call that has unified governments, businesses, the financial sector, consumers and broader society.

Efforts to protect the planet and make the world a better place have accelerated only in the past decade so we’re at early stages. Led by the European Union, governments around the world are now starting to codify vague and tenuous concepts around environmental sustainability and using them to force convergence to ambitious targets.

The United Nations has played a key role in pushing the ESG agenda and is behind many of today’s core workstreams. Key UN agencies driving the principal work streams include the UNFCCC, the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs, who developed the SDGs, and the UNEP FI.

Key learning objectives:

  • Understand how the UN has been driving the ESG agenda
