Protect your business against ESG risks

In recent years the tide of social consciousness for business has shown signs of shifting in a more socially beneficial direction, signaled by the popularisation of acronyms such as CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility), ESG (Environment, Social, and Governance), and D&I (Diversity & Inclusion).

Meanwhile, modern economists have written much about the replacement of Milton Friedman’s shareholder benefitting approach with a multi-stakeholder benefitting approach that seeks to recognize a corporation’s responsibilities to employees, customers, communities, and the planet as well.

Businesses can no longer focus narrowly on short-term profits but instead must pursue strategies that deliver performance across traditionally non-financial dimensions. The argument now is that ultimately, all risk is financial risk.

Effective misconduct reporting and resolution is critical to integrity

  • Within the Ethics & Compliance field, it’s increasingly clear that the function plays a key role in helping organizations navigate the waters of bias, diversity, and equity as well as growing concerns such as ESG (Environment, Social, and Governance).
  • A true measure of a company’s integrity can be taken from an exercise in observation – where bullying or harassment flourish, you will likely find neglected safety protocols, careless use of protected data, environmentally damaging behavior and incidents of white-collar crime.
  • Institutional investors such as BlackRock, the world’s largest asset manager, are pressuring companies they invest in to disclose their long-term environmental risks. Nasdaq is trying to make board diversity a listing requirement.
