Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance

How it works

Environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) reporting focuses on the performance of an organisation in three domains of sustainability – environment, society and corporate governance.

The environmental reporting includes how an organisation affects its environment by various indicators, including factors such as carbon emissions, energy, ozone, smog, land, air and water quality, deforestation, biodiversity, waste management and the circular economy.

The social reporting includes how an organisation contributes to the adjacent or distant societies. ESG reporting establishes the impact of organisations in factors such as local employment, community development, economic growth and customer satisfaction.

The corporate governance reporting relates to how organisations manage their own practices and procedures as well as how they meet regulatory requirements. Relevant governance factors include fair wage policy, discrimination, health and safety of employees, work hours, child and forced labour and bribery and corruption.

Due to the diverse range of factors being assessed, ESG reporting has grown from a corporate social responsibility initiative into a global buzzword within just a decade. Our experienced consultants at Carbon Neutral can demystify the process and enable businesses to make the right decisions in which level of assessment is appropriate for them.
