2023 Key Sustainability Trends and Developments in EMEA
This IDC Market Perspective provides an overview of the key trends and developments on corporate sustainability and ESG in Europe. Decarbonization continues to be a core focus, with the need to also measure scope 2 and 3 (and potentially 4) emissions. Topics such as the nature agenda, circularity, and sustainable business transformation are also starting to be addressed.
"Sustainability efforts by European companies are evolving from ambition to action, driven by various factors such as energy price hikes, stakeholder scrutiny, and regulation at the EU and national levels. Technology providers have opportunities in helping clients with advanced data collection and analytics and supporting their sustainable business transformation," said Katharina Grimme, associate vice president and research lead on sustainability in IDC Europe.
