How companies can get to grips with ESG demands

The following extract is taken from an article published on Sustainable Views (FT) – see How companies can get to grips with ESG demands – Sustainable Views.

To ESG or not to ESG — that is the choice that some would suggest is before all companies. The reality, though, is that businesses all over the world have no choice. Over time, they will all need to adapt to a lower-carbon economy.

Anticipating and mitigating climate-related risks, as well as capitalising on new opportunities, such as tapping into transition finance, will be front of mind for many, as will the ways in which companies respond to wider social and governance concerns and rules.

  1. Ensure your transition plans translate ambition into action
  2. Take advantage of financing opportunities

  4. Don’t forget about Mother Nature
  5. Remain alert to greenwashing risks
  6. Prepare for human rights and environmental due diligence
  7. Consider competing interests
