According to the results, Europe continues to lead the world in ESG adoption, with 96% of European respondents saying they use ESG in their decision making. Canada ranked second at 81% — an eight percent decline from last year. Asia ranked third at 75% — a four percent increase from last year. The US trails the pack, as it has in the past, remaining in the 64% to 66% range for three consecutive years.
