How Does ESG Consulting Relate to Your Business?
A responsible and ESG ‘compliant’ business offers sound management practices, genuine net-zero carbon emission plans and outcomes, and maintains the wellbeing of supply chains, customers, and employees at the core of their business operations. To understand who to align with, conscious employees, investors, and shareholders, look for enlightened consideration regarding:
The environment: This critical element evaluates how organisations interact with the environment and natural resources, incorporating recycling and plastic use and carbon emissions.
Social obligations: These ethical and legal responsibilities encompass how companies treat their staff, suppliers, customers or clients, and related communities. This element includes policies and behaviours around equality, diversity, inclusion, labour relations and worker rights.
Sound corporate governance: This integrity-based business pillar focuses on leadership concerns such as internal controls, shareholder rights, and executive pay. Good governance can enhance corporate reputation and long-term trust-based relationships, boosting investor and stakeholder confidence.
However, defining and measuring these aspects of companies can be difficult, with limited reliable and valid data. This lack of standardised and regulated criteria makes identifying good ESG candidates challenging, potentially reducing investment, talent, and shareholder potential.
