What is Environmental, Social and Governance?
Environmental, social and governance (ESG) is not new, it is really a more measurable evolution of Corporate, Social, Responsibility (CSR).
- Environmental covers issues around climate change, pollution, carbon emissions and footprint, deforestation, and more
- Social covers issues around health and safety, human rights, diversity, equality and community impact.
- Governance deals with business ethics including board composition, executive compensation, accounting and auditing, bribery and corruption.
