Companies are human organizations with tremendous power and responsibility.
Not only are companies expected to be economically viable, but also to listen and share their success with their stakeholders.
In the past, stakeholders were owners and employees; nowadays, customers, suppliers: communities, investors, media, trade unions, or government agencies are within this circle.
Customers base their decisions on their supplier philosophy and values. And even financial institutions take into consideration best governmental practices as a metric to analyze creditworthiness. Quality talent is attracted to organizations with inclusive policies and respect for the personal sphere of the employee.
To strategize about your Environment, Social, and Governance practices means to move towards a positive impact and a way to contribute to society while being regarded as a forward-thinking leader.
