Exploring Environmental Social Governance
While not a new concept or strategy, Environmental Social Governance programs are on the rise. Over the last couple of years, as natural disasters continued to pick up in intensity and COVID-19 brought rising income and healthcare inequalities to center stage, Corporations have increasingly been pouring more focus on their own ESG measurements and practices in conjunction with their Corporate Social Responsibility efforts. ESG isn’t just for companies that produce products that contribute to environmental concerns like plastics companies or oil and gas, and it’s not just for industries that tend to be more under the public eye as a consumer-driven and b2b organization. ESG can be for everyone, no matter how small or large your workforce or what industry your company falls into.
