ESG is here to stay – it pays to stay informed
This page is dedicated to providing current and relevant information on ESG and how it’s applied in the real world. If your task is to build and maintain a solid ESG base for your company, it’s worth some background reading.
Who is responsible for dealing with ESG in your business?
It will depend on variables including turnover; number of employees; the product or service; geographical locations; supply chain; and customer base. It could be organised by a highly-trained and financed team – or added to the job description of someone already over-stretched. Overall, the board is responsible for getting it right.
Things are already changing. Explore and imagine how you can increase the value of your ESG.
