Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG), which refers to metrics related to intangible assets within an enterprise, has been gaining increasing attention from both the public and private sectors in recent years. On the other hand, technologies, especially data-driven intelligence-enabled ones, have been playing a role of ever-growing importance in today’s organization of all sorts. It is therefore high time to examine and explore the opportunities and challenges these KDD-related technologies have brought to ESG of today and tomorrow, and how we can design, develop and regulate these technologies to best foster ESG in a sustainable way. This special theme “ESG Day” of KDD 2021 has therefore aimed to bring together researchers, practitioners and experts from various communities to exchange and explore ideas, frontiers, opportunities and challenges under the broad theme of “Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance” in a highly interdisciplinary manner.
