What is ESG Compliance

ESG compliance

Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) compliance refers to a set of guidelines and standards a company implements in internal policies that are mandated by regulatory bodies.

For a company, being ESG-compliant means following ESG principles and taking action in three dimensions:

  • Environmental. Environmental criteria imply a company’s impact on the environment and the risk management practices it takes to reduce it. This includes the company’s carbon footprint, its practices to address climate change, toxic chemicals’ usage in manufacturing, and sustainability efforts that make up its business and supply chains.
  • Social. Social ESG considerations take into account the way a company improves its social impact and manages relationships with employees, customers, stakeholders, suppliers, and communities in the area of its operations. Among the ESG issues that this criterion tackles are racial diversity, LGBTQIA+ equality, work ethics, and inclusion programs.
  • Governance. Governance regarding ESG practices considers everything related to the way the company is managed and led and how the management drives positive changes. It includes executive pay, shareholders’ rights observance, and internal controls to promote corporate transparency.
