What on earth is ESG and how will it make a difference to my business?

The most successful and progressive leaders of today are embracing ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) throughout their businesses in various forms. ESG is a vast and ever-changing topic that is no longer background noise and should be considered the backbone of any business. At Menzies we can help guide businesses through a process to decide what areas you should be looking at and the value it can bring to your organisation.

Ultimately, it comes down to a de-risking and ‘future-proofing’ strategy that will make businesses more valuable and provide opportunities for growth. Whether you are aware of the pressures yet or not, acting now is your best option.

Let us, as experts in Business, guide you through a process to understand your options and give you a clear vision for your short-term and long-term strategy. We want to help you align your business plans and goals to a robust ESG strategy.

Often, businesses are trying to tackle the individual aspects of ESG in silos or waiting to act, only once the regulations trickle down to the smaller businesses. However, ESG doesn’t have to be reactive and can benefit each business in different ways, often helping to tackle other business issues along the way.

ESG is proven to increase:

  • Your competitive advantage in the market
  • Top and bottom-line growth
  • Recruitment and Retention of employees
  • Stakeholder Engagement
  • Supply chain robustness
