The ESG Future Foundation Mission
Over the past few years alone, the world has seen a shift in urgency regarding ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) issues, with each facet needing to work together in order to maintain sustainable growth in the future. The ESG Future Foundation is dedicated to collaborating with organizations and communities, embodying the purpose-driving spirit of all ESG operations and working to find lasting solutions.
Better For Businesses, Better For the World
In addition to being the right thing to do, businesses have a lot to gain from embracing ESG principles, including:
- Better long-term business outlooks
- More sustainable business strategies
- Greater access to capital
- A more engaged and productive workforce
- A better alignment with the needs of current and potential clients
By promoting ESG, the foundation helps to make the communities a sustainable and better place to live. So, when you support initiatives aimed at promoting more viable ESG initiatives, everybody wins.
Why Our Work Matters
The world is changing, both for businesses and for consumers. With 80% of global businesses reporting exposure to physical or market transition risks associated with climate change [S&P Global Market Intelligence], and 76% of customers willing to stop buying from companies that treat the environment, employees, or the community in which they operate poorly [PwC], it’s clear that businesses need to find a more sustainable way forward to remain viable.
Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) are the criteria many investors are likely to consider when deciding whether a company is a worthwhile investment. This is because these are the factors that will need to be considered when attempting to predict a company’s longevity and its dedication to sustainability. If a company is treating their community well and is supportive of environmental and ecological frameworks that make its business practices viable, it will make it easier for those investing to believe they are making a positive choice.
