What is an ESG strategy and transformation services?

An ESG strategy is a holistic enterprise strategy that helps create long-term value for all stakeholders. It is in alignment with business objectives and builds resilience to enable ongoing success in a future that is characterized by social and environmental change. It focuses on an organisation's need to act and adapt by taking into consideration emerging and future trends in ESG regulation, changing stakeholder behaviors and shifting expectations from lenders, investors, insurers and rating agencies.

Additionally, companies must know where they can have the greatest impacts on long term value creation, translating these areas into priority ESG topics.​
