Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”) strategy has become an integral part of every business’s development which can help companies to achieve long-term sustainability and create value. ESG factors are increasingly used by investors to assess the non-financial value of businesses and identify ESG-related risks and opportunities in making their investment decisions. Strong ESG practices can help companies proactively meet the evolving expectations of customers and investors, stay resilient by getting ready for emerging ESG challenges and opportunities and maintain robust governance and risk management.
