Thematic Intelligence - ESG Sentiment Polls Q1 2024


This report is based on polls designed to help us understand the current sentiment of the business community toward ESG (environmental, social, and governance) themes.

Q1 2024 saw an increase in employee awareness of company stances on ESG values compared to previous quarters. This increase in awareness coincides with the greater discussion of environmental and social issues following the COP28 event in December 2023.

There is a rising lack of faith in the business communities’ commitment to ESG, with most respondents believing that businesses still view ESG as just a marketing exercise. However, this will likely change over the next few years as government-imposed legislation and ESG reporting requirements become more stringent.


Our sentiment polls ran between January and February 2024 on GlobalData's Verdict network of B2B websites, which had 8.6 million unique visitors in Q1 2024. In total, 1,428 respondents participated in the survey.

The survey looked at attitudes towards ESG, the most important theme impacting businesses over the next decade.
