ESG (environmental, social, and governance) excellence is rapidly becoming mandatory for resilience amid changing societal expectations, investor pressures, regulations, climate impacts, and technology disruption. Companies failing to take responsibility for issues like ethical conduct, diversity, emissions reductions, product sustainability, and data privacy now face existential risks to reputation, talent retention, operations, and profits.
But when done right, strategic ESG management also offers huge chances to create value, lower risk, come up with new ideas, grow in new markets, make brands stronger, hire top talent, plan for the future, and do better than competitors who stick to old, profit-first ways of thinking.
This complete guide gives CEOs, executives, board members, managers, and business owners the knowledge and a plan they can use to create, implement, measure, and communicate an ESG strategy that fits their specific industry and business goals.
