What is ESG?
ESG which stands for Environmental, Social and Governance, and is generally used to characterise the sustainable, responsible and ethical traits of a company. Firmly established ESG criteria demonstrates your organisations commitment to being sustainable and ethical and also to demonstrate that your organisation applies strong corporate governance controls.
The need for structured strong EGS controls is generally driven by two factors. Tender selection criteria - which specify a requirement to prove that ESG is taken seriously, and that the potential supplier can readily demonstrate its ESG credentials and Investment criteria – which are often a condition for investors/funds to invest in certain organisations. Every organisation will approach ESG commitments, compliance and how they track these obligations differently depending on prioritises, size and overall business objectives.
The environmental criteria will focus on how an organisation performs as a steward of nature. Focusing on topics such as:

Why should it be considered?
Recent events have shown that the only thing which is certain is ‘uncertainty’. This has created a need for organisations to focus on the extent to which their supply chain effectively manages ESG obligations. In addition, it has created an environment in which many investors and policymakers realise a greater need to accelerate investments and progress on businesses which prioritise ESG. EGS provides your business the ability to become resilient in the current and possible future crisis.
What impact will it have?
Having a strong ESG approach can make it easier for your business to enter new markets and expand their operations in existing markets as well as allowing your organisation to use more sustainable methods of production to allow for more efficient production and reduced costs.
Attracts potential employees and engages current employees:
Potential employees are now more focused on working for a company which shares similar values, and they want their prospective employer to care about their ESG responsibilities. If your company includes sustainability in their business strategy treat employees like stakeholders, fostering a culture of employee loyalty as they feel their values are being met and their serving a purpose.
Doing the right thing:
We all know that we must do what we can to minimise our impact on the environment in both our personal and business life. Development of appropriate ESG controls will help us to protect the future of the planet and the generations which will come after us.
