Mark Makepeace speaks at the launch of LSEG's Guide to ESG Reporting

Mark is Group Director, Information Services, LSEG and CEO, FTSE Russell. Here he highlights the collaborative work – including work with global organisations such as the UN and the World Bank – which has underpinned the development of the Guide.

Recalling his involvement in the launch of the FTSE4Good Index series in 2001, Mark charts how and why the intervening years have seen ESG factors become more and more integrated into the investment process. He also draws on his own experience to show the enthusiasm among today’s investment professionals for accessing comprehensive data based on commonly accepted standards in this space.
