In today’s business climate, sustainability planning and competitive advantage are closely linked. Investors and executives alike are realizing that Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) planning not only meets environmental obligations, it makes good business sense. Part of ESG planning involves establishing Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that both preserve our planet’s natural resources and protect an organization’s bottom line.
By transitioning from sustainability planning to verifiable postive ESG outcomes, businesses can help protect their bottom line as well as demonstrate its core values as they relate to stakeholder accountability, equality, diversity, inclusion, corporate social responsibility, and environmental concerns.
Environmental Criteria (E) - Sustainability planning is essential to successfully address the E in ESG and includes the energy an organization uses, the resources it needs, the waste it discharges, and the consequences to the environment. The E considers how each organization affects and is affected by its environment. Sustainability planning is absolutely essential to successfully address the E in ESG.
Social Criteria (S) - The S in ESG includes the relationships within your organization and the reputation it fosters with people and the institutions in its communities where you do business. The S considers how a company manages its relationships with employees, suppliers, customers, and communities. It also applies to a company’s labor relations as well as its diversity and inclusion policies.
Governance (G) - The G in ESG considers the internal systems, controls and procedures that an organization has in place to govern itself, make effective decisions, comply with regulations, and meet the needs of stakeholders. The G includes C-suite decision makers, the board of directors, managers, shareholders and stakeholders.
