The ESG Global Survey 2019
We were asked by BNP Paribas to design and conduct primary research into the effects of environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG), in order to create original and evidence-based thought leadership content. The research was conducted globally in multiple languages both online and by telephone and the subsequent report – Great Expectations for ESG – was so successful that it was repeated two years later.
Building on the 2017 survey, this year’s report – The ESG Global Survey 2019 – has trumped BNP Paribas’ expectations. Social media traffic to the website increased from 5% to 18% from the first week of campaign launch and drew over 1,000 extra visitors to the website.

“This is the second time that I have worked with Longitude on the ESG Survey. They have a collaborative culture. We have ideas. They have ideas. And together it works very well. I also greatly appreciate their level of service - they come back so quickly with responses to questions, no matter the question.”
Kate Spencer, Content Strategy Manager, BNP Paribas Securities Services
In October and November 2018, Longitude surveyed individuals within 347 institutions, including asset managers and asset owners (pension plans, insurers, official institutions, sovereign wealth funds and endowments). The study was conducted through a combination of telephone interviews and an online survey and the results were supplemented with a series of in-depth interviews.
The resulting campaign is a leader in its field, and provides a benchmark for analysis into the strategic adoption of ESG.
