ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) is a critical topic today. By the way, as the need to transition to sustainable energy sources becomes increasingly urgent, a major discovery in the field of renewable energy has recently been made in the United States: it is a new type of renewable energy that serves as a beacon of hope for a cleaner and greener future. The U.S. Department of Energy has announced a breakthrough in fusion energy, a type of nuclear energy that generates power by fusing atomic nuclei. This discovery could be a critical step toward developing a commercial fusion reactor, which could generate electricity without greenhouse gas emissions or long-lived radioactive waste. In addition, the technology could be cheap, safe, and almost limitless, making it a viable alternative to traditional solar and wind power forms.
Investors and consumers are increasingly interested in companies’ social and environmental impact, and are using ESG metrics to assess the sustainability of different investments and products. As a result, many companies are now incorporating ESG considerations into their strategies and operations in order to appeal to these investors and consumers. ESG includes Sustainability principles and those trends will drive business transformation in 2023 to create value, manage risks, and reconfigure industries for a more inclusive and resilient economy, according to IMD experts.

and so on. ESG trends become more important for the world and companies and sustainable business practices are becoming an imperative for businesses.
