WHAT IS ESG?
Operations of all businesses have Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) concerns. In the last few years the term EGS has been frequently used in the sustainability sphere. This term initially arose from the ESG assessment conducted by financial institutions for funding. Boadly these ESG issues include the following:
Corporate governance outlines the relationship between stakeholders, management and the board of directors of the organisation. Good corporate governance provides direction on how the organisation shall implement its business strategy, achieve the goals, identify & manage risks and benefit its internal and external stakeholder as well as the environment. By disclosing information on the organisation’s structures, policies and procedures we further strengthen confidence amongst the stakeholders that the company has strong governance structure in place making it less susceptible to adverse scenarios.
