Companies around the globe have stated their intentions to do more than just make a profit. ESG — or Environmental, Social and Governance — has become the unifying lens with which to evaluate these efforts. Investors, customers, employees are asking: how well does a company score on ESG?
But ESG involves more than just screening a company’s beliefs and actions around social and environmental factors. As firms actively strive to contribute positively to the environment, address governance practices, and support social causes, many are also working toward ESG compliance by being more open and honest about their business activities. In this series of Explore Business mini-sites, Wharton School Dean, Erika James joins Wharton faculty and industry-leading experts to discuss how organizations can improve on ESG criteria and drive impact around everything from climate change to social and political issues.
Meant to be incorporated into classroom discussions and assignments, we invite high school educators and students to dig into these rich learning opportunities with the help of Wharton-powered insights and tools. Explore Business with a world leader in business education.
