About this episode

In this bonus episode, Ashurst partner Anna-Marie Slot chats with Patrick Temple-West from The Financial Times in New York.

Patrick recounts his journey as a reporter and the shift he’s seen from ESG being dismissed as PR spin to it being taken more seriously in business, media and politics. He describes how shareholder voices on ESG are forcing businesses to act and editors to pay attention.

As a journalist, Patrick applies a healthy dose of scepticism when businesses make bold claims about their ESG credentials. In our podcast, he talks about seeking out specific actions that back up these claims, including the “pinch points” where institutions accept short-term downsides, in order to achieve long-term ESG targets and benefits.

Patrick also highlights the big stories he’ll be following and reporting on this year, and he explains why the ‘G’ in ESG could grab the most headlines.
