Introduction to ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance)

Introduction to ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance)

ESG stands for Environmental, Social and Governance – three factors that provide a framework for investors and business leaders to evaluate a company’s value and potential for future growth. Beyond investors, ESG is becoming increasingly important to customers, consumers, partners, employees and the communities in which companies operate.

ESG factors can relate to activities across an organization and impact every aspect of a company’s operations. For example, environmental factors include policies and practices related to carbon emissions, air and water pollution, biodiversity and waste. Social factors cover issues such as diversity, equity and inclusion, human rights and worker safety. Governance looks at how a company operates internally, its practices, controls, procedures and corporate behavior, including ethics and bribery and corruption.

Regardless of the industry, region or company size, all employees can benefit from a general understanding of what ESG is, why it matters, and the connection between this evolving area and the organization’s values, principles and practices.
