Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG)

ESG consultancy - expert support & advice to help your business achieve improvements in each area & build an ESG proposition

What is ESG?

Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) criteria are a set of standards used as a framework by organisations to evaluate their success beyond profit, as well as manage risk and capture opportunities. Businesses are under increasing external pressures from socially responsible investors to make ESG related disclosures, and all types of investors are more regularly considering ESG integration as standard in the investment process.

An introduction to ESG from our Sustainability Coordinator, Susanna Jackson:

Let’s break each area down…


Environmental criteria address a company’s environmental impact and environmental stewardship.


  • Energy use
  • Water use
  • Waste management
  • Pollution
  • Carbon emissions
  • Biodiversity and land use


Social criteria evaluate how a company manages relationships with and creates value for stakeholders.


  • Health and safety
  • Diversity and equality
  • Human capital development
  • Community relations
  • Data privacy
  • Supply chain


Governance criteria address company leadership and management philosophy, practices, policies, internal controls and shareholder rights.


  • Business ethics
  • Board composition
  • Risk management
  • Stakeholder centric engagement

Benefits of completing an ESG review
