Environmental, Social and Governance
Responsible. Sustainable. Diverse.
The concept of “ESG” is rapidly gaining momentum across Australia, and more broadly, the world – placing greater expectation on organisations and leaders to reframe their role in society, as well as the ways social and environmental challenges are addressed alongside existing commercial considerations.
ESG refers to a set of standards for a company’s behaviour used by socially conscious investors to screen potential investments. It impacts almost every way we do business and challenges us to step up and do “the right thing” by our planet and our people.
