What is an ESG report?
An Environmental, Social and Governance Report (ESG) is a statement from a company announcing its current commitment to any environment, social and governance issue. It states how they are going to act in the future regarding these credentials.
The purpose of an ESG report is to state the purpose and values of the company. This will lead to increased trust from stakeholders such as investors, suppliers, customers, and employees. An ESG is a communication tool to document your companies efforts to being environmentally and socially conscious.
Companies only need to create one ESG report, which they will keep updated and use whenever it is required.
Who needs ESG?
