What is ESG?
ESG goes beyond environmental issues like climate change and resource scarcity - it encompasses all non-financial topics that are not typically captured by traditional financial reporting.
ESG consulting offers specific value when navigating the shift of expectations on businesses from being more focused on corporate social responsibility (CSR) to predominantly ESG-focused. CSR has been on the business radar for many years and provides a qualitative measurement of a businesses impact on society and its stakeholders. On the other hand, ESG is a way to quantifiably measure a company's impact on society and the environment, using metrics that deliver long-term stakeholder value.
More than ever, organisations are developing sustainability strategies that focus on creating value amongst a broad group of stakeholders - including employees, customers, suppliers, investors and community groups - whilst managing their broader obligations to society and the environment. Stakeholders are also demanding companies be more and more transparent about their performance.
