CUBE Data Report: The Evolution of ESG Regulation
Ever wondered which issuing body has published the most ESG regulatory content? Or which continent has published the most ESG laws?
This report is the third in a series of CUBE Data Reports, which leverages CUBE’s propriety inventory of standardised regulatory data to draw meaningful insights from global regulatory activity. The report investigates 52,920 ESG-related issuances over a five-year period, providing access to the intricacies of the ESG landscape. Despite the slowdown in ESG progress, from Russia’s invasion of Ukraine to inflation, it is still a widely debated topic.
Our analysis paints a clearer picture of which topics issuing bodies are most focused on, how they have transformed, and identify trends across the global regulatory landscape.
The report covers:
- Of those 52,920 issuances, 30,224 (57%) were referenced by European issuing bodies, who are at the forefront of ESG regulatory messaging.
- Europe alone has published 11,446 issuances referencing ‘sustainability,’ however, only 724 of these are in-force regulations.
- In terms of specific issuing bodies, the European Commission mentioned ‘sustainability’ in regulatory content such as news, announcements, and publications 5,374 times. Whereas the Government of the United States of America takes the lead in terms of in force regulations and references ‘sustainability’ 288 times.
The report features several special contributors, including Michelle Witton, Greg Davies, Barrie Ingman, and Maria Lombardo.
