These are unprecedented times, with leaders being called upon to navigate current unchartered territory. In addition, they are also facing the increasing expectation from stakeholders that organisations will take a leadership role in addressing ESG issues.
What do leaders need to think about when it comes to ESG?
- Adhering to the highest ethical standards – transparent business practices and decision-making that acknowledges the impact on all stakeholders.
- Contributing to solving today’s most pressing challenges – reducing greenhouse gas emissions, supporting the transition to a low-carbon economy, promoting social inclusion or taking action on human rights issues.
- Considering their influence and platform to drive positive change – speaking out on important issues, championing responsible business practices or collaborating with others to create a more sustainable future.
There is no doubt that leadership in ESG is challenging. But, by taking the time to consider these things, leaders can ensure that their organisation is not only surviving but thriving in today’s environment.
