This guide aims to help investors, entrepreneurs, policymakers and others to understand the evolving global landscape surrounding environmental, social and governance (ESG) investing and impact investing. The entrepreneurial and financial paradigm is shifting towards a vision of matching profit with the pursuit of social or environmental impact. With a focus on the most recent and upcoming regulatory and policy developments in this area, the contributors to this volume examine how their respective jurisdictions legally address ESG, impact investing and purpose-driven companies, and explore how non-governmental organisations and networks are supporting and promoting the transition to responsible finance and business.

The year 2020 will of course go down in history as one of the most unusual and difficult years the world has faced in modern times. As we prepared this 10th edition of The Corporate Immigration Review, most of the world’s immigration systems had ceased functioning with any semblance of normality. All over the world, government policies and national strategies have been upended by the threat of covid-19. As we celebrate the 10th edition, we hope the 11th will be produced in the context of a greatly revitalised world.
