Last year's unprecedented surge in environmental activism forced regulators to respond. The unprecedented amount of attention on climate and sustainability also shifted the focus of investors and attracted more attention to Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) related topics, with the “environmental” component in particular, likely to remain a dominant trend in 2020 and beyond. A wide range of sectors are set to be affected moving forward as regulators, investors, and civil society grow increasingly more concerned with environmental activism and other ESG related issues. As traditional forms of demonstrations are set to continue targeting an increasingly broader set of industries from a wider range of activists, businesses should expect to see a further increase in discussions and activism around sustainability.
