Markets rise and fall, and investment trends come and go. While these short-term fluctuations have an impact on a company’s day-to-day stock valuation, they do not accurately reflect the long-term investment potential of an organization.

When investors want to lock in a company’s future stability and growth potential, one of the best measures available is the company’s Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) profile.

This regularly updated post will serve as your hub to find the latest news and trends around ESG, and what business leaders need to know.

What Is ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance)?

ESG is a framework for evaluating a company’s long-term health and prosperity as defined by its environmental, social, and governance behaviors. While each component is evaluated individually, investors are looking for strong performance in all three areas:

  • Environmental: Management of an organization's direct and indirect environmental impact.
  • Social: Assessment of an organization’s relationships with its employees, customers, suppliers, partners, and communities as well as the social impact of its operations on the surrounding area.
  • Governance: How a company’s leadership and the board of directors run the organization, including business ethics and oversight of environmental and social impacts.
