 Everything you wanted to know about ESG!

Do you want to be competitive and stay updated? Then you might be interested in ESG standards (Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance) and how they could help your business reach a new level.

ESG is the concept of conscious consumption. It helps businesses, large and small, attract investors, build customer loyalty, improve financial performance and ensure business sustainability.

The term ESG is often used as a synonym for sustainable development, corporate social responsibility, social investments, or environmental compliance. While some of these elements may be part of an ESG program, risk management and the preservation of market rate and enterprise value are at the heart of ESG.

A well-designed and well-executed ESG strategy in an enterprise helps to provide access to capital markets, attract new customers, retain old and attract new competent employees, as well as increase their motivation, increase return on investment by directing capital to more promising and sustainable projects, as well as avoid inefficient capital investments and financial losses.
