New research developed by Corporate Citizenship, in association with S&P Dow Jones Indices, reveals that long-term thinking is not the norm among many businesses:
-26% of all companies assessed had no relevant mentions of long term value
-ESG communication remains challenging - for the 74% of companies that did mention long-term value, many struggle to articulate the importance of ESG factors for long-term business success
-Key performance indicators (KPIs) are often missing, and when companies mention long term value creation they rarely link it to KPIs
