The importance of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) performance cannot be overstated in today’s rapidly evolving business and financial landscape. ESG has transitioned from a mere buzzword to a defining factor influencing a company's cost of capital and its access to financial resources.

The surge in regulatory initiatives, whether related to environmental concerns, social issues, or governance standards, all emphasize one thing: the need for transparency. They push companies toward deeper disclosure, broader connectedness, and enhanced collaboration throughout their supply chains. In this article, we will explore key regulatory ESG developments, the challenges they pose, and the role of technology platforms like e2open’s on this critical ESG journey.

The EU has increased its focus on heightening supply chain security and safety via the enormous innovation ICS2 will deliver when complete.
