ESG: The pathway to positively impacting Planet, People and Profits

Written by David Fleming, Global Managing Partner


Today’s business leaders, and more so the leaders of tomorrow, want to align themselves with purpose driven organisations, that have a clear commitment to being more than just a successful company delivering great financial results. Increasingly, individuals want to work for a company whose leadership team and shareholders take responsibility for the part their organisation plays in making the world a better place.

As such, Executive Boards find themselves preoccupied with the evaluation of their organisation’s collective conscientiousness for social and environmental factors – otherwise known as Environment, Social & Governance (ESG). There is growing understanding that having a clear approach to ESG not only creates long-term value and attracts investors, but it also engages the employees of today and attracts the leaders of tomorrow. Ultimately, a positive ESG vision of the future includes organisations that enjoy sustainable growth and strong revenues, while also being a force for good in society.

This paper explores how having a strong commitment to ESG, that is effectively measured, communicated and interwoven with a company’s Employee Value Proposition (EVP), allows employers to deliver authentic talent strategies that set them apart. Strategies that will attract, engage and retain the very best individuals. In addition, you will find practical recommendations from our partner Rio ESG, an intelligent sustainability software provider, on how to effectively track sustainability data and report on your ESG performance, along with some case study examples.
