Purpose, Sustainability & ESG

Organizations are facing unparalleled pressure from investors, regulators, consumers, employees, potential talent and other stakeholders to increase transparency with respect to their positions on environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues.  This includes taking a clear stance on social and political issues and having a purpose that goes beyond generating returns for shareholders alone.  Against this backdrop, it is critical for organizations to have a strategy and clear framework to navigate the evolving sustainability and ESG landscapes.
