UNLOCK THE POWER OF ENVIRONMENTAL, SOCIAL & GOVERNANCE (ESG)
STRATEGIES FOR YOUR BUSINESS
WHAT IS ESG?
Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) refers to the three key factors used to measure the sustainability and ethical impact of an investment in a company or business. These factors help investors and companies evaluate how a business is performing in terms of environmental stewardship (like reducing carbon footprint), social responsibility (such as fair labor practices), and governance (including transparent accounting and effective management). Essentially, ESG criteria offer a way to assess how a company manages risks and opportunities related to these three areas.
