The evolving world of ESG and knowing where to focus
Today’s investors have ESG expectations when it comes to the companies they investment in, and having an effective ESG strategy in place is essential. Developing the strategy should be informed by investor priorities that will strengthen engagement with those investors, improve the company’s ESG profile and, most importantly, drive long-term value creation.
Keeping abreast of ESG trends and ensuring your organization integrates your ESG strategy – especially with ESG initiatives, ratings, rankings, frameworks, and data providers changing at a rapid clip – can be a challenge though. It can be daunting to know where to begin, as well as understand and differentiate what is relevant to you and your company and what is ESG white noise.
