ESG & Sustainability Compliance

Driving sustainable practices through excellence in ESG

ESG & Sustainability Reporting

In today’s world, where environmental and social consciousness is paramount, companies are placing great emphasis on developing robust Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) programs, which include fulfilling Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) commitments. These programs are comprehensive, addressing a range of issues from reducing carbon emissions and protecting the environment to ensuring sustainable practices, human rights, and ethical sourcing.

To enhance the effectiveness of these ESG initiatives, businesses are now incorporating Supplier ESG ratings into their evaluation criteria, significantly influencing suppliers’ opportunities for business growth based on their commitment to social responsibility. This approach not only encourages companies to assess and improve their supply chains but also promotes industry-wide efforts to tackle climate change, enhance diversity, and evaluate social and environmental impacts, fostering a more sustainable and responsible business ecosystem.

ESG compliance solutions to common challenge

    The process of ESG compliance management can be challenging. Below, we list the three most common obstacles a company might face when handling compliance and ESG.

  • Multiple ESG frameworks and standards
  • Companies involved in ESG corporate compliance commonly stumble over a huge number of ESG frameworks and standards and experience difficulties when choosing which to follow. No wonder, there are many regional or industry-specific standards and no single global framework.

    Solution: To narrow down a selection, a company should clearly identify what environmental, social, or governance issues matter inside the organization. Whether they prioritize staff diversity or want to reduce carbon emissions, they should focus on frameworks and standards that are concerned about that particular issue. Additionally, it is important to take the regional aspect into account.

  • Identifying ESG goals and principles:
  • The next step is to define the ESG goals a company wants to achieve and make them part of its strategy. Many organizations struggle with setting goals without understanding how they will be achieved.

    Solution: For successful ESG and compliance, it’s recommended to hire ESG specialists who can assist with setting ESG goals, and that will help to meet ESG requirements.

  • Managing ESG data and metrics over time:
  • Understanding ESG goals and what frameworks and standards a company should follow is only half the battle. It’s also important to clearly define ESG metrics to realize how progress will be measured. Additionally, a company should have a solution for ESG data collection and management.

    Solution: Using board portals can be the best answer. Board meeting management software enables the collection and safe storing of large volumes of data and allows stakeholders to access and evaluate that data. Additionally, it’s possible to conduct meetings from within the software, which greatly simplifies ESG compliance management.
