ESG & Sustainability
In the face of global disruption, Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors, and the actions organizations are taking to address these issues, have never been more important. The demand for companies to operate with greater transparency and social purpose has led to increased scrutiny from a host of stakeholders, including customers, investors, employees, media, and policymakers.
Stakeholders expect companies to play an increasingly active role in ensuring transformative, long-term sustainability goals are met. As such, companies must now look beyond regulatory compliance to anticipate policy and stakeholder expectations and ultimately help shape the future. This increased scrutiny has pushed ESG priorities to the forefront for companies and boards as they address investor demands for growth that embrace these issues. While the shift to sustainability presents both risks and opportunities, the transition to such an agenda requires a strategic, multi-stakeholder approach.
