What you need to know about ESG

ESG is a framework that assesses a company’s performance and impact in three areas: Environmental, Social, and Governance

Environmental criteria consider a company’s efforts in climate change, pollution, water use, biodiversity and commitment to developing a circular economy. Social criteria focus on how a company manages relationships with its employees, workers in their supply chain, customers, communities, and other stakeholders. Governance criteria evaluate the company’s leadership, transparency, and ethical practices.
