Build a solid sustainability strategy with ESG Global Guidance.
Hearing the call for your company to show its sustainability? We guide you through the complexities with universal standards for your reporting.
What are sustainability, ESG, and their impact?
While the current trend is to use the terms interchangeably to describe non-financial reporting obligations, sustainability and ESG (or environmental, social and governance) issues are not the same. Sustainability is a much broader concept, about meeting the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
An effective sustainability strategy puts into perspective your company’s impact on employees, consumers, the environment and the global community, directs on how to increase reliability, and can even improve its bottom line.
From there, reporting moves you towards sustainability, identifying gaps to ensure your efforts are protecting people and the planet. In turn, it helps to attract investors, talent and clients, and promotes a better company reputation.
