What is ESG and what is its impact?
Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) efforts is what companies do to increase accountability in its business, responsibility in its actions and transparency in its operations. An effective ESG strategy enhances a company’s impact on employees, consumers, the environment and the global community, helps increase its reliability and can even improve its bottom line.
