In what has become an annual tradition, we would like to end our ESG weekly blogs this year on a happy note.
2022 was a very complex year. While some issues improved on the ESG front (work is being done to standardize ESG reporting, more companies are launching sustainability strategies, countries had more ambitious goals announced in the COP27 event), we also saw the beginning of a new war in Ukraine, significant pressure on ESG funds as the underweighted energy sector outperformed, and the continued effect of the pandemic on many social segments (mostly the underprivileged).
At Miranda ESG, we are very fortunate to continue gaining the trust of our clients every day, leading to continuous growth, the development of more ESG solutions, and never ending learning. We are very grateful for this. I am also personally very grateful to our team, for all their hard work and dedication. Miranda ESG could not be what it is without you.
So, to inspire some joy and positive thinking during these last few days of the year, here are 10 of our favorite sustainability news of 2022:
- Renewables have saved 230 million tonnes of CO2 emissions so far in 2022
- 2022: a year of milestones on the road to implementing sustainable finance

CEO, Miranda ESG
