Martin Skancke speaks at the launch of LSEG's Guide to ESG Reporting

Martin is Chairman of the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), which has been one of the prime movers of the Sustainable Stock Exchanges (SSE) initiative. Here he outlines his fundamental belief in transparency as the basis for improved ESG performance, and explains why he is so pleased to see LSEG taking a leadership role in promoting it.

At the same time, Martin cautions that global ESG regulators and influencers have so far made only a limited impact. As he argues, a concerted effort is still required to enable further progress in this area and keep driving markets in a positive direction.
