This summary is provided by the IPR ESG and Purpose Resource Page based on the original study by Golin.

Golin explored how companies can combine their diversity efforts and sustainability goals in their approach to environmental injustice in America.

Two surveys were conducted from May 23 – June 10, 2022 of 1,537 U.S. adults and 150 U.S. C-suite executives.

Key findings include:
— 90% of executives said that it’s important for corporations to address environmental injustice, but 49% don’t believe it would lead to tangible outcomes for minorities and low-income communities.
— 85% of Americans said environmental justice is a critical issue.
1.) One-third of Americans were satisfied with the efforts made by companies and C-suite leaders.
— Nearly half of consumers said it’s a CEO’s duty to address environmental justice.
1.) One-third of executives said that they think it’s up to ESG and sustainability departments to manage environmental justice.
