ESG is fast becoming critical for all companies globally, with particular attention focussed on governments and companies operating in advanced 1st world nations. It is a recognition that companies need to be responsible for their actions both for climate change and how they support and interact with all people/employees/ stakeholders in a fair and equitable way. Companies need to not only create policy, but also act and report annually. ESG is becoming an extension to the action major governments globally are taking to address climate change and the various societal movements to create a fairer and more equitable society for all.
