With this research, we want to add some depth to an important conversation about Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) and sustainability strategies. In a fast-changing landscape, how are the UK’s mid-market businesses approaching ESG?

As the only full-service bank for the mid-market, we’re familiar with the ESG progress that our clients are making every day. However, we’ve noticed that in comparison with larger business, there is less consensus on the solutions to sustainability-related challenges.

To address this gap, and in our two-part series, we have focussed on common questions and challenges that are facing the UK’s mid-market companies on the topic of sustainability. The January 2024 report is ready for download.
