IMPACT ● INFLUENCE ● INNOVATION
Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) refers to the three central factors in measuring the sustainability and societal impact of an investment in a company or business.
A thing is viewed as an integral part of the business when it is strategically aligned to what the business needs. Therefore, strategic ESG alignment involves beginning with the need in mind – determining the performance expectations of the sustainability and societal impact and then designing and delivering sustainability to meet those specific objectives.
Strategic ESG alignment requires more than meeting an organisation’s current business needs – it also involves anticipating an organisation’s future needs. When done correctly, strategic alignment of sustainability initiatives resembles in many ways the exercise many companies undertake when performing organisational alignment of socially responsible investing (SRI), sustainability, and/or philanthropy.
The winner of the InnoESG Prize (Recognitions for Impact) can demonstrate to the public the considerable emphasis it places on people-centric ESG and how its business constructively impacts on society and the environment. The Prize is a great platform for companies to build up their brand as one of the leading corporations in promoting sustainability and/or philanthropy.
