Short for “environmental, social and governance,” ESG represents a more stakeholder-centric approach to doing business. As ESG increasingly becomes top of mind for directors, it’s essential to consider the global nuances that drive focus region by region.
Companies that adhere to ESG standards agree to conduct themselves ethically in those three areas, and can draw on a range of ESG strategies, tactics and ESG solutions to do so.
But with such a wide range of possible approaches and solutions, and a panoply of issues that fall under the ESG umbrella, where should organizations focus? How should they make a start?
A good first step is to identify the issues fit into the umbrella categories of environmental, social and governance. Those can include:
Preservation of our natural world
• Climate change
• Carbon emission reduction
• Water pollution and water scarcity
• Air pollution
• Greenhouse gas emissions
Consideration of humans and our interdependencies
• Customer success
• Data hygiene and security
• Gender and diversity inclusion
• Community relations
• Mental health
Monitor & Achieve Your ESG Goals
Centralize the data you need to set and surpass your environmental, social and governance (ESG) goals.
• Monitor and act on current and future ESG risks
• Gain clarity on evolving regulations, requirements and liabilities
• Foster collaboration among ESG stakeholders throughout your organization

ESG investing can also cut risk in emerging markets. There is research to suggest that companies adhering to ESG principles have a lower chance of tail risk — the risk of unlikely events that lead to catastrophic damage.
ESG Sets a New Standard in Finance and Operations Principles

And investors are following suit.
