ESG & Regulation

Global sustainability policies are evolving rapidly. In the U.S. President Joe Biden has made climate change and environmental justice priorities of his administration. In the European Union, ESG regulations like the green taxonomy and the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) are changing the way companies do business.

COP26: Connecting the Dots
Coordinated action is necessary between the public and private sector to finance the transition and map a new approach to funding and financing climate-friendly projects. Limiting warming to 1.5°C relative to preindustrial levels by 2050 will require $3.5 trillion annually in investment, according to a 2018 estimate by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

Supply Chain

Supply Chain Strains and Rising Costs Will Pressure Profitability in 2022

Global nonfinancial corporates appear to be taking supply chain disruptions and soaring cost inflation in their stride. S&P Global Ratings’ analysis suggests that in 54 out of 78 global sectors, most companies are finding it very easy or somewhat easy to pass on costs. Based on the last 12 months' results, EBITDA margins look set to hit a new high in 2021.

Cost increases have been absorbed or negated in a variety of ways – demand offsets, demand shifts, product mix adjustments, hedging, indexation, positive operational gearing, cost pass-throughs, and keeping pay growth low. In S&P Global Ratings’ view, profit margin pressure will start to ratchet up in 2022. S&P Global Ratings’ analysts expect supply disruption will persist until the end of 2022 for more than half of all sectors.
