How ESG can shape an organization’s sustainability

Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) is an umbrella term for operating in a way that embeds sustainability into an organization’s business strategy and core operating model. ESG concepts are not new, but with pressures from consumers, employees and institutional investors they are gaining momentum and can have a real impact on the bottom line of a business. A strong and meaningful ESG program can reduce costs, manage and mitigate risk, and attract and retain talent.

In “How ESG can shape an organization’s sustainability,” written in collaboration with Bloomberg, Baker Tilly leaders in ESG and diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) reveal:

  • Why organizations must embed ESG to be successful in the long term
  • How supply chains are evolving with sustainability goals
  • What are three key drivers for ESG momentum
  • How to avoid greenwashing and create transparency
  • Why organizations fall short on their sustainability journeys
  • How the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) supercharges clean energy ESG initiatives
  • Why DEI is important in an ESG strategy
  • How to start your ESG journey
