RSM US Middle Market Business Index
By RSM US LLP
A new Middle Market Business Index special report from RSM US LLP states that the growing importance of environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues has reached an inflection point in the middle market, even in the face of the dramatic economic fluctuations of the last year and a half. Stakeholders’ increased focus on ESG will continue to present immense business opportunities for organizations that position themselves to adapt to these shifting priorities. 
 
“It is in the economic interest of the U.S. economy in general—and the business interest of middle market firms, in particular—that the integration of ESG practices into core operations becomes essential,” says RSM US LLP chief economist Joe Brusuelas. “Organizations can no longer wait and hope for the best. They need to act decisively and prepare for a different regulatory framework while shaping market-driven demands going forward.”
