What is ESG?

ESG encompasses a business's environmental impact, societal contributions and governance transparency, focusing on integrating ethical practices into operations and models to enhance sustainability and corporate responsibility.


The environmental element of ESG assesses how a business minimises its ecological footprint. It scrutinises energy usage, waste and pollution management, resource conservation and animal treatment. This criterion evaluates environmental risks, regulatory compliance and proactive measures like using renewable energy, developing eco-friendly products, adopting sustainable packaging, reducing emissions and enhancing recycling initiatives.


The social aspect of ESG evaluates how a business impacts society and its workplace culture, focusing on employee health, safety and fairness. It involves ensuring product safety, data security, preventing supply chain abuses and promoting workforce diversity and inclusivity. Social criteria also include community investment, like funding educational projects, highlighting a commitment to ethical practices and societal betterment.


Governance in ESG refers to the ethical, transparent decision-making and reporting processes in a business. It ensures accountability in financial performance, risk management and operations. Governance practices include preventing bribery, promoting leadership diversity and transparency in executive pay. Good governance appeals to investors, aids supply chain relations and supports business growth.
