Sustainable business practices prioritize long-term stability, resiliency, and value over short-term financial rewards. Their strategic focus looks to improve performance and address risk without negatively impacting the planet, community, or society. Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) is a framework for establishing a strategy, setting goals, and measuring the impact that environmental, social and governance issues have on a business — and the impact the business has on the world.
Statements and reports published by companies regarding their ESG goals, targets, and achievements are attracting increased scrutiny from stakeholders and regulators alike. With proposed SEC rule changes, companies should prepare themselves to adapt to increasing regulatory requirements.
