How purpose drives your ESG & Sustainability strategy
ESG programs make you more attractive to investors because it demonstrates that you're thinking about risks from all sides and addressing those risks.
Your customers expect you to be thinking about the environment, thinking about your people in the community and they're going to base their decisions on whether they buy things from your company on what you're doing in that regard.
Develop an ESG & Sustainability action plan
It all starts with develop an action plan, but you can't create this action plan, until you know what's important to your industry and what your strategy is.
So, to figure out what's important for you and your industry, you need to hear from all your stakeholders, especially your customers, the external stakeholders that you deal with, like regulators and investors.
When you know where to focus, you're able to develop a strategy around those things and then you're able to execute through your people.
