They also want their organizations to demonstrate its commitment to the core tenets of ESG: protecting the environment, enhancing social impact and diversity and inclusion, investing responsibly and ensuring effective corporate governance.

Why does ESG matter?

People seek meaning from their work today more than ever. Building a strong reputation for ESG allows you to attract, retain and engage talent more effectively in a competitive talent environment. That talent is also critical to your ability to deliver on your ESG targets. Your employees need to be inspired by your vision, aware of your activities and allowed to contribute to them, feeling motivated to make a difference through their personal contributions.
