ESG is a set of context-based policies, practices, risks and opportunities that build resilience and help maintain long-term value when assessed against and integrated into firm strategy.
For businesses of all sizes, disclosure of ESG information has evolved into a business necessity. Its evolution is in response to broad stakeholder pressure seeking decision-useful (investing, hiring, partnership, purchasing etc.) information, helping to decipher the relevance of business impacts, risks and opportunities that affect long-term viability and value.
Choosing the right advisory firm is key for any business seeking advice on where to start an ESG journey or how to mature its efforts. In order to keep pace with the evolving landscape of ESG, highly effective ESG advisory teams are more than just ESG disclosure experts, they have varying backgrounds and experiences.
