Environmental, social, and governance, sometimes referred to as sustainability, is more than environmental impact. It's about creating economically sound processes that create positive impact on your organization. A by-product of ESG is better employee retention, community engagement, and product development. By redefining sustainability, we identify ways that can put money back into your pocket.
What is ESG?
E - Environment and represents the amount of resources, energy and waste created or used to manufacture and sustain your business. Environment is generally associated with greenhouse gas emissions and climate change.
S - Social and represents the Company's reputation within its community, customers, vendors, and employees. Social is generally associated with Diversity and Inclusion and the protection of human rights within its workforce and its vendor's workforce.
G - Governance and is the Company's internal practices and procedures to run its operations and comply with laws and regulations.
Why ESG Reporting?
ESG Reporting is your story. Your ESG story can be more than required disclosure, it can be a glimpse into why customers buy from you, why employees stay with you and why vendors sell to your company. Transparency into your ESG helps attract top talent, customer engagement, and identifying efficiencies in your supply chain.
