Special Issue on Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG) and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a collection of 17 interdependent global goals designed to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. The SDGs were set in 2015 by the United Nations General Assembly and are intended to be achieved by the year 2030. They are included in a UN Resolution called the Agenda 2030.

The 17 interdependent goals are: (1) No Poverty, (2) Zero Hunger, (3) Good Health and Well-being, (4) Quality Education, (5) Gender Equality, (6) Clean Water and Sanitation, (7) Affordable and Clean Energy, (8) Decent Work and Economic Growth, (9) Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure, (10) Reducing Inequality, (11) Sustainable Cities and Communities, (12) Responsible Consumption and Production, (13) Climate Action, (14) Life Below Water, (15) Life On Land, (16) Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions, (17) Partnerships for the Goals.

Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG) refers to the three central factors in measuring the sustainability and societal impact of an investment in a business. Disregarding ESG factors in investment activities will make SDGs difficult to achieve. Therefore, this special issue aims to contribute on how ESG could help achieve SDGs.

The contributions to this special issue are expected to bring new knowledge and insights in this field which will be of interest to a wide range of stakeholders, including governments, industry, and other policy makers.
