What is ESG?
Here, environment includes issues related to carbon dioxide and other pollutant emissions, disposal procedures, resource efficiency, waste management, biodiversity, and relationships with environmental regulators.
Investors are particularly interested in issues related to environmental responsibility. An excellent environmental program is a representation of the company’s commitment and ability to minimize its environmental impact.
The social pillar is concerned with how
the company manages its relationships
with its employees, customers,
suppliers, partners, and local
communities. This includes, but is not
limited to, how employees are treated,
benefits, and diversity.
It is important for a company to have a defined social 'policy', a set of social values, and a demonstration of how these are (or are not) put into practice. Human rights issues, procurement processes, customer service, consumer protection and the company’s impact on local communities are also criteria to consider.
This pillar includes the extent to which
management integrates sustainability
considerations into corporate
governance processes. Examples
include cooperation with stakeholders
(shareholders, investors, employees,
partners, etc.), incentives, executive
remuneration, and key indicators of
success from a sustainability
perspective. At the same time, attention
must also be paid to corruption cases,
conflicts of interest, transparent
operations and the leadership
ESG helps bring relevant (non-financial) business risks and liabilities to the surface so that customers can make more informed decisions while also supporting sustainable investments.
Why is ESG so important?
Global climate change is directly related to ethics & practices of global organisations. Over the last few decades, we’ve seen that even as global organisations comply with applicable legislation, climate change has still become the foremost challenge of our times.
From greenhouse gases and depleted resources, to plastic waste saturating our seas and inadequate working conditions, it’s clear that practices of global organisations need to be deeply addressed.
ESG provides a framework for interpreting non-financial data, making the risks of environmental and social impacts visible and understandable to investors and also decision-makers who may be less familiar with
technical, scientific and social issues.
From diversity to our environment, ESG provides global organisations a clearer path to social responsibility.
