What Does ESG Mean?

Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) is a high-level critical framework that evaluates an organisation’s ethical impact and sustainability practices. It encompasses three key dimensions:

  1. Environmental: How an organisation performs as a steward of the natural or physical environment.
  2. Social: How an organisation interacts with its workforce, the society in which it operates, and the political environment.
  3. Governance: How an organisation makes decisions, reports and ensures ethical behaviour.

ESG Implementation

A variety of best practices within ESG should be incorporated into your organisation’s framework. This will guarantee that your organisation not only meets reporting standards but also implements ESG in a manner that secures endorsement from, and resonates with, your stakeholder groups.

1
ESG Audit & Materiality Assessment

Determine the priorities of your stakeholders, both within your organisation and externally, and identify the areas in which you are already excelling.

2
ESG Policy & Strategy

Write a policy to recognise your commitment to ESG and identify the activity gaps before developing your strategy accordingly.

3
ESG Training

Educate your workforce on your ESG strategy to secure buy-in and motivate concrete actions.

4
ESG Reporting

Compile the results of your ESG activity and develop a report to share with your stakeholders.

Why is ESG Important?

A robust ESG position allows organisations to quickly adjust to regulatory, commercial and ethical drivers.

  • Regulatory: The United Kingdom has implemented various ESG-related legal obligations that affect businesses nationwide, such as the Net-Zero commitment, the Environment Act, and the Equalities Act. Implementing ESG will reduce the potential for legal challenge.

 

  • Commercial: Many investors now consider ESG criteria as a hallmark of investment potential. Organisations that overlook ESG considerations may face a decline in investor interest. Additionally, ESG factors are frequently required in procurement processes, and those scoring lower on these criteria may be at a disadvantage compared to their competitors.

 

  • Ethical: Recent data indicates that employees and consumers are placing greater emphasis on ESG in their purchasing and career choices. Organisations that prioritise ESG are often better positioned to attract customers and new talent.
