Environment, Social, and Governance
The term “ESG” encompasses environmental, social, and governance concerns, but the specific interpretation of its meaning can vary and public perception is evolving quickly.
It is essential to understand the comprehensive ESG landscape, including the net zero transition, sustainable finance, human rights concerns in supply chains, and purposeful corporate governance. For businesses, the challenge lies in incorporating ESG considerations into daily operations and turning goals and aspirations into practical, achievable action plans. This is a significant undertaking and requires careful planning and execution.
Our team focused on ESG is knowledgeable about the market’s regulatory and policy drivers and has experience in various industries and situations. We take a comprehensive approach that addresses multiple areas such as climate change and efficient use of resources, respect for human rights and community involvement, prevention of bribery and corruption, transparency and disclosure, product governance, and overall risk management. We offer various services on this front.
