ESG (environmental, social and governance) was created by investors who want to invest in a socially responsible way. More and more companies now want to take account of these factors and thereby contribute to an important social change. This need not be at the expense of profitability, because companies that embrace ESG aspects are becoming increasingly popular.
This allows companies to distinguish themselves from competitors and strengthen their value creation in the long term. It is therefore good for every company to consider what it can contribute in the field of ESG. In addition, many regulations regarding sustainability are being drafted, as a result of which companies will have to comply with additional obligations in this area in the short term. This requires careful and complex decision-making at companies, which we are happy to help with.
