Key insights to help guide your ESG strategy

Developing and executing an environmental, social, and governance (ESG) strategy is critical. These insights can help guide your next important steps.

Having an environmental, social, and governance (ESG) strategy is growing more and more important for businesses – but what exactly is it, and how does it fit into your overall business strategy? An ESG strategy is a holistic way to look at your organization’s approach to environmental, social, and governance practices. It covers everything from employee benefits to recycling policies and can help you reinforce your commitment to your customers, your investors, and your business partners (as well as the planet).

Your ESG strategy should consider key stakeholder objectives, industry priorities, and regulatory obligations. You can evaluate existing programs and add new goals that are achievable and impactful for your organization.

We asked some of our clients how they’re working to implement ESG efforts in their business – and the results could help you understand the next steps to take for your organization. Take a look at these questions and answer them for yourself – then, see where your responses stack up next to our surveyed clients.*

*Note: The data below was collected from 95 clients of varying sizes across a variety of industries in July 2021. Clients were asked a variation on the questions below, and in some cases were asked to give more than one answer. Because of these factors, not all percentages will add up to 100.

Not sure where to start your ESG strategy? Our ESG team can dive into what you’re doing, why it matters, and help you make forward-thinking decisions.

What does all this mean for your business? ESG efforts may vary by industry and regions but getting started now is vital to your success. It's possible, no matter the size of your organization, to find efforts that make sense for your company.
