ESG - Emergency Sustainability Governance?
Emergency Sustainability Governance (ESG) is taking the world by storm in the (rat) Race to Net Zero.
You may be among the many if you need to report your company’s GHG emissions but are still in a daze of what the ESG entails. You may not be the only one to have lost your sense of humor – if you took seriously my alternate definition of the ESG acronym.
The actual ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) may be a rude awakening to many. But then, at our just concluded GHG accounting and reporting workshop this week, being able to mingle face to face with corporations that have chosen to ride on the wind of change is uplifting.
To help drive a lively and vibrant learning experience, we took the liberty to turn on active, problem-based work sessions and discussions to address participants’ real life corporate challenges.
Apart from addressing the core learning outcome of this program, i.e., corporate GHG reporting based ISO 14064 and GHG protocol standard, participants were also kept engaged throughout the two days’ workshop on topics that best resonated with them., from assigning the authority and scope, accounting for product life cycle footprint, to leveraging SBTI, carbon pricing and market tools.
Ultimately, embracing ESG will help build a compelling corporate image across supply chains and stakeholders. Beyond that, working with the community will build long term corporate resilience.
