PwC recently released its US institutional investor survey about sustainability. Here’s an excerpt:

US investors told us that the top priority for business should be the development of innovative products, services, and ways of operating (84%). Ranked second is the need to maintain profitable financial performance (73%). Rounding out the top five priorities are: data security and privacy (55%), effective corporate governance (52%), and reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions (39%). Among the subset of US investors that are based in the US, the fifth highest priority is to ensure reasonable supply chain practices, with reducing GHG emissions ranking seventh for that group.
