Here’s an eye-popping stat to start the day off right…yesterday alone there were 2,400 articles published on the topic of ESG. There’s NO way to keep up with all the research and opinions circulating on the topic. But we’ve selected three that may just help:
This article from Gartner is great for companies looking for advice on where to start their ESG journey. For anyone struggling with the topic, it does a great job of describing Materiality Assessments (one of the key things you’ll need to do along your way to becoming an ESG expert). All in all, the article covers some solid steps to building a comprehensive ESG program.
Taking a look at all the headlines out there, tons of ESG articles focus on ESG investing or ESG ratings. This one hits on topics closer to home for EHS practitioners. It’s a collection of good news and bad…with “51% of executives agree that their company should address ESG issues — even if doing so reduces short-term financial performance.” But then “Only a quarter (27%) of companies have any enterprise-wide ESG KPIs in place, and fewer still have a full set in place (just 3%), according to the survey.” The article closes with some suggestions to overcome barriers to delivering on ESG goals.
I’m a sucker for a good HBR article. This one debunks the perceived trade-off between choosing a more sustainable future and achieving business growth and profit. As in most HBR articles, not only does it cover big problems encountered in dealing with ESG, it proposes solutions for overcoming them.
