ESG reporting is quickly becoming the norm for companies to communicate their value beyond profit margins. With the global drive towards sustainability, investors and stakeholders are increasingly looking to ESG reports and practices to manage their investments. Having a robust ESG framework in place will benefit not only your business, but also customers, tenants, and employees who wish to be a part of creating a better- and more energy efficient- world.
ESG stands for Environmental, Social, and Governance. ESG reporting is becoming the norm for communicating how your company works towards bettering the environment, strengthened relationships between employees, customers, and the community, and ensuring a competent, ethical, and equitable governance system is in place. While there are no hard and fast rules to reporting or developing a framework, ESG best practices involve establishing a clear and achievable strategy that incorporates your company’s own values, mission, and vision.
