ESG – holding businesses accountable

The global sustainability movement, the growing number of millennial investors and the Covid-19 pandemic has made ESG the new corporate buzzword.

Environmental, Social, and Governance, ESG, is an approach to evaluating an organisation’s corporate accountability in terms of its business ethics, treatment of employees and impact on the environment. Also known as socially responsible investing and sustainable investing, ESG investing looks at how organisations are applying ESG principles to their business strategies in addition to profit indicators.

While some businesses view ESG as an additional cost centre, research found that it could reduce operating costs by as much as 60%. Other studies showed that ESG is associated with higher profitability and lower volatility, and that ESG investors are “stickier”.

How can organisations create strong and meaningful ESG propositions?
