What is ESG?

In recent years, there has been a greater emphasis on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) programmes. Organisations with ESG programmes seek to incorporate these principles into the core of their culture and the way they operate on a daily basis. They are driven by data to truly understand the environmental and societal impacts of their business and to provide a governance structure around it to ensure they are transparent and accountable.

REFRAME THE CHALLENGE

There are many good reasons to advance sustainability initiatives, but it can feel overwhelming. There is also the misconception that operating in an environmentally sustainable way is expensive. You may be asking yourself:

"WHERE DO I START?"

"HOW DO I GET MY STAKEHOLDERS TO BUY IN?"

Here’s the good news: you don’t need to make any trade-offs. Today, you can do both the right thing for the environment and the right thing for business. Many organisations are saving money by purchasing renewable energy. And streamlining workflows and removing waste is an effective way to manage costs.

Signs of a strong ESG program

Transparent

Issuing a public report and aligning with relevant reporting frameworks holds organizations accountable and opens the door to employees and partners to collaborate, innovate, and tackle challenges.

Data-driven

Data is gathered for every step of the process, including setting goals and reporting on progress. Collecting this activity data to measure performance is a shared task across the organization.

Equitable

Strong ESG programs don’t focus solely on the environment. They understand the human impact of their organization and seek to support their employees and surrounding communities to create a more equitable and sustainable future.
