Mid-market sustainability gains momentum

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM — A recent Investec Bank study reveals promising sustainability adoption among mid-market firms, with 70% integrating or adopting strategies. 

This shift largely stems from beliefs that robust environmental, social, and governance (ESG) performance boosts investor, acquirer and partner appeal.

The 500-company, cross-sector survey indicated 90% are maintaining or increasing sustainability investments, viewing ESG as crucial for strategic growth and funding access. Sixty-three percent agreed it raises partner and acquirer appeal, while 58% believe it attracts investors.

Sixty-one percent acknowledged weaker financing negotiation positions without a sustainability approach.

However, smaller sub-£50 million ($60.5 million) revenue firms especially face challenges, with resource/funding shortages heightened over two years by rising costs, risking falling behind.

Investec Bank Head of Direct Lending and Executive Sustainability Sponsor, Callum Bell, emphasized supporting clients to enable sustainability goals. He highlighted Investec’s role engaging clients to identify opportunities and provide tailored solutions.

Investec Bank, a financial products/services provider operating internationally from Johannesburg headquarters, has shown steadfast commitment to supporting sustainable business practices, fostering growth, and enabling strategic mid-market solutions.
