What is ESG?

What does ESG stand for?

ESG stands for Environmental, Social, and Governance. In today’s world, where businesses are increasingly aware of their impact on society and the environment, ESG has emerged as a crucial framework for sustainable and responsible business practices.

Understanding ESG

ESG encompasses a set of criteria that investors, stakeholders, and companies themselves use to evaluate a company’s impact beyond financial performance. Let’s break it down:

Environmental (E)

The “E” in ESG focuses on how a company manages its environmental impact. This includes efforts to reduce carbon emissions, conserve resources, and minimise pollution. Companies committed to ESG often prioritise sustainability initiatives such as renewable energy adoption, waste reduction, and green supply chain management.

Social (S)

The “S” in ESG emphasises a company’s relationships with its stakeholders, employees, and the communities it operates in. Socially responsible companies prioritise fair labor practices, diversity and inclusion, employee well-being, and community engagement. They aim to create positive social impact through initiatives like charitable giving, volunteering programs, and ethical sourcing practices.

Governance (G)

The “G” in ESG refers to the governance structure of a company, including its internal policies, leadership transparency, and adherence to ethical standards. Strong governance ensures accountability, integrity, and fairness in decision-making processes. It involves practices such as board diversity, executive compensation transparency, and anti-corruption measures.
