In the recent history of business, shared purpose, and impact, the role of a corporation has evolved from traditional corporate philanthropy and CSR to shared value to purpose. As stakeholder expectations and business action accelerate apace, we are now in a new era – the era of transparency and accountability.
In today’s environment, a company’s approach to managing Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors is widely viewed by stakeholders as an indicator of effective risk management, agility in the face of change and the quality of the C-suite and the Board. To achieve success, a company’s ESG strategy must advance its business objectives – creating new opportunities and driving long-term sustainable performance.
