ESG the Key to a More Sustainable, Profitable Business.
It is not only investors that value the importance of ESG metrics, customers and employees are more demanding and are attracted to businesses who make it a priority to protect the environment and operate in a fair ethical way. Stakeholders have made it clear; they want businesses to share the values that matter to them. Regulators are also leading businesses toward sustainability, social justice and effective, ethical corporate governance as they continue introduce enhanced regulations to protect the environment, ensure compliance with regulations and promote ethical operations.
Satisfying environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria is no longer an option for businesses, it’s a necessity to survive and prosper. Strong ESG performance is essential, not only to satisfy requirements from regulators and investors, but also to build goodwill among customers and employees.
Furthermore, ESG also represents a growing opportunity. Businesses who actively promote an environmentally friendly operating model are attracting new customers by offering ‘green’ sustainable goods and services.
