Enviromental, Social and Governenance (ESG) related deals made up 13.7% of all deals announced in the power industry operations and technologies sector in the first six months of 2021.

This represents a decrease from the figure of 38.4% in the last six months of 2020 and a decrease from 37.2% in the first six months of 2020.

These themes, of which ESG is one, are best thought of as "any issue that keeps a CEO awake at night", and by tracking them, it becomes possible to ascertain which companies are leading the way on specific issues and which ones have some work to do.
