Media 360

Third Edition - April 2022

Welcome to the latest edition of Moore Media 360

Welcome to the latest edition of Moore Media 360, which is our collection of topical content from our member firms and clients from around the world.
 
Whilst this edition focuses on a number of topics, its spotlight is on ESG. Here, we look at the different elements of ESG and question what part they play across the media and creativity sectors. How far has the ESG agenda woven itself into the fabric of the creative process and what can the industry do to ensure it is fully absorbed? Alongside the environmental, social and moral importance of getting ESG right, we also explore whether ESG is set to become an indicator of value when it comes to M&A.
 
The last couple of years have centred around Coronavirus. While the virus is still present, the war in Ukraine has dominated the headlines and everyday life. I would like to take this opportunity to send our best wishes to everyone affected by this situation.
 
As always, we hope you find Moore Media 360 insightful.
