What is ESG?

ESG stands for Environmental, Social, and Governance, and represents a set of standards that socially conscious investors use to screen potential investments. It reflects how a business is committed to acting ethically and responsibly with environmental stewardship, social impact, and governance practices. These factors are crucial for corporate sustainability.

What are the benefits of ESG integration for asset managers and asset owners?

The integration of ESG factors provides asset managers and owners with a competitive edge. It aligns investment strategies with broader social and environmental goals, meeting the increasing public demand for ethical investment options, such as ESG funds and socially responsible investing (SRI).

Why are ESG factors important in investment and business decisions?

ESG factors are critical as they offer a measure of a company’s sustainability and ethical impact. Incorporating ESG considerations into investment and business decisions can drive long-term returns, enhance risk management, and improve your organisation’s reputation. Particularly for investor firms, prioritising ESG factors responds to a growing market demand for sustainable and responsible business practices.

What are the core components of ESG services?

ESG services encompass a comprehensive approach to sustainability and responsible business practices, including ESG set-up, data collection, data strategy, and sustainability reporting. These services ensure that a company’s ESG strategy is robust, compliant with regulations, and aligned with stakeholder expectations.
