ESG – Corporates

Environmental, social and governance: corporates

The days of providing limited or generic information on a company’s true climate resilience or decarbonization position are coming to an end. Whether you are at the beginning or end of a supply chain, the onus is firmly on your organization to do the best you can in regards to environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance.

Those who make decisions about what to buy and what to invest in, from and with whom, as well as those who rate risk within companies, need access to accurate and helpful information so that they can make informed decisions. Think corruption and bribery, think human rights, think of any area which was once a tick the box exercise that ceased to be, think of any business activity that crossed the line to become a moral issue. This is where climate change and sustainability for corporates is headed.
