Key resources to understand our complete ESG consulting and responsible investment services

ESG management has become business critical

Once purely a financial services term, ESG is now routinely used in board rooms as the useful collective descriptor for the range of aspects that relate to how a business interacts with society and the environment.

It spans climate change and wider sustainability, environmental compliance and liability management, health, safety and wellbeing, diversity and inclusion, employee development and retention, customer welfare, community relations, and business ethics and governance, amongst others.

Crucially, it is now understood that as both risks and opportunities, ESG factors are central to long-term commercial success. Environmental Social Governance management has become business critical.

Yet, whilst ESG is now in common business use, investment and the accessing of capital often still drives and defines the form of actions taken. From pension fund managers seeking to win new mandates, through to asset managers helping to invest that capital, to public or private businesses providing the opportunities for investment – actions are required to demonstrate that ESG risks and opportunities are being managed.

What does ESG mean?

ESG refers to a range of issues that fall under the umbrella terms of Environmental, Social, and Governance, used to measure how a business interacts with society and the environment. As potentially both risks and opportunities, and increasingly recognised as central to the long-term commercial success of a business, many investors are increasingly scrutinising and prioritising these factors as part of their financial analysis process.
