ESG propositions are much more than just statistics and reporting. There is often a strong correlation between a successfully executed ESG program and increased equity returns. The following are some areas we often explore to drive and optimise value delivery.
Building a strong ESG proposition opens the gateway to new opportunities in both existing and unexplored markets. An increasing amount of screening processes and due-diligence criterion now factor in various areas within ESG, with the most common being sustainability performance.
Reducing costs and improving efficiency through ESG can help ease supply-chain pressures and rising costs in operations or materials. This can have a substantial effect on the profitability of an organisation, as such initiatives imply the ability to increase output with the same finite amount of resources.
Investors are becoming increasingly ESG-aware with their decisions and portfolio allocations. Enhancing investment returns through the tailwind of ESG and sustainability initiatives presents an opportunity to drive value in the long-run, whilst at the same time mitigating risks associated with non-compliant or reliance on unsustainable resources.
Various studies have shown strong correlations between positive social impact with high job satisfaction and general employee satisfaction with increased profitability. Driving value through ESG propositions that enables enhanced employee productivity and motivation will impact the organisation positively and in a sustainable way.
As ESG is a broad term encapsulating many aspects of an organisation, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to formulating the right strategy.
