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.
