ESG – Searching for substance behind the acronym
ESG is an acronym much used but perhaps less understood. Externally, with particular reference to the “E” and the “S”, it describes a range of impacts that a company or business has on both people and the planet. The “G” describes the internal workings of a corporate entity and the extent to which the mechanisms, systems and structures implemented by those in senior positions within a company create a culture that enables that company to meet its business, environmental and societal goals. However, as is increasingly recognised, environmental and societal goals can and should relate to and enhance a company’s business plan and commercial success. Indeed, a company’s culture is central to delivering on its objectives and purpose.
