This paper provides an overview of global and corporate sustainability trends in emerging markets and describes environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks and opportunities for investor seeking long-term returns in such regions.

Research highlights:

  • Although lower than in developed markets, ESG integration by companies operating in emerging markets is improving with significant country variations.

  • Among ESG markets, South African and Latin American companies tend to be the most advanced on ESG issues.

  • Although sustainability disclosure is present in 9 out of 10 companies in the emerging markets, this figure drops when it comes to external verification or the adoption of standardised guidelines.

  • Implementation and progress tracking on environmental commitments is still weak, although pressure on emerging market companies is likely to grow, particularly in fast growing countries like India and China as these countries are starting to play a bigger role in the international climate change regime.
