Skyrocket your company’s sustainability by dropping your energy consumption, shrinking your carbon footprint, and cutting costs!
ESG is the acronym for Environmental, Social, and (Corporate) Governance – the framework for assessing the impact of a company’s ethical practices and its ability to run an environmentally sustainable business.
ESG is increasingly seen as a window into the future of a company’s probable success. And although leading companies are adopting ESG as a vital business imperative, ESG-minded business practices aren’t reserved only for the Goldman Sachs’ of this world.
In 2020, only 45% of board agendas featured ESG as a regular topic, up from only 34% in 2019.
This leaves ample room for your company to be counted among the early adopters of this game-changer!
ESG practices aren’t new considerations in business, but their role in the economy is ballooning due to both climate change and Covid-19. This combination has spotlighted how environmental issues play a defining role in the long-term prospects of a company.
In recent times, the younger generations have also shown increased interest in putting their money where their values are. This means more business for companies that take their societal role seriously and continuously evaluate their impact on the relevant communities.
