Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG).
ESG, or Environmental, Social, and Governance, is a framework used to assess a company or investment’s sustainability and ethical impact.
It considers a company’s environmental impact, including actions to combat climate change, decrease carbon emissions, conserve resources, handle waste, and safeguard ecosystems. Additionally, it addresses matters like fair labour practices, diversity and inclusion among employees, human rights, consumer protection, and community involvement. ESG also pertains to the structure, policies, and practices governing a company’s decision-making and accountability. This encompasses aspects such as Board diversity, executive compensation, shareholder rights, ethics, and overall transparency.
