Future City ESG Innovation Index


Developed by specialist consultancy DEEP Ecosystemsa new index highlights the capacity of cities and their innovation ecosystems to deploy Corporate Social Responsibility solutions. These "start-ups" are developing innovations in the environmental sector (decarbonization of industry, circular economy, "clean" energies...), in the social field (education, training, health...) and in governance (e-government, public transport, smart cities...).

These sectors represent an opportunity for development, as demand accelerates for solutions for the transition to a greener, more sustainable economy. The report highlights that $60 billion has been invested in startups focused on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) criteria across more than 100 European cities since 2018. This trajectory is set to continue, against a backdrop of multiple crises (climate, energy, health and social).
