Business leaders are often surprised to discover how mainstream and specific the environmental, social, and governance (ESG) assessment of their companies is becoming—and just how much capital is being influenced by these considerations.
At Framework, we have found there are four assessment steps that will help any company successfully adapt to this new reality. To help you inform leaders and peers about trends in ESG evaluation among leading investors, we’ve put together a few slides that you may find useful in leading conversations. Please feel free to use and adapt these as you like, or to contact us if you’re looking for more data, customized business case slides, or support with your ESG strategies.
Today, public trust in institutions is at an all-time low. Stakeholders expect more responsible management than ever from corporations, and investors are increasingly scrutinizing management practices with the help of a growing set of data platforms for evaluating material environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors.
Businesses are often surprised to discover how mainstream and specific the ESG assessment of their companies is becoming—and just how much capital is being influenced by these considerations. To stay ahead of this trend, companies, especially S&P 500 members and other prominent corporations, should examine the ESG/sustainability expectations of their top shareholders and the ways in which key ratings organizations are assessing them.
Below we chart the dramatic rise of ESG factors in global investment decision-making in recent years, and offer 4 steps every company should take. The infographic is also available for high-resolution download as a PDF (2MB).
CDP, formerly known as the Carbon Disclosure Project, is a non-profit that collects voluntarily disclosed data related to a corporation’s environmental impacts. CDP’s four programs – climate change, water, forests, and supply chain – allow companies to disclose emissions, resource use, and strategy within a defined global framework to address requests from shareholders, stakeholders, and customers. The organization represents more than 800 institutional investors managing $100 trillion in assets.
In our latest infographic (also available as a .pdf), find out who asks for and uses this environmental data, and what a company should consider when completing a CDP questionnaire.
