ESG Performance Benchmarking and Improvement

ESG Performance Benchmarking and Improvement

Reducing our human impact on the environment and meeting new sustainability requirements set by governments and stakeholders require organizations to actively improve their sustainability/ESG performance in all aspects of their business. Improving their ESG performance will require organizations to firstly review their business activities and supply chain and identify how they impact the environment, their employees, and the communities in which they do business. It requires that they also look at their financial activities and identify where bad environmental and social practices are impacting or could impact their bottom line. 

Secondly, it will be helpful to benchmark their current performance against known criteria/ standards in the industry to determine how well they are performing, giving them credible data to base their business decisions. Thirdly, they will be able to identify areas where improvements are needed with the data collected. At this point, programs and projects can be created and implemented to address these areas. 

Organizations ignoring the need to examine their ESG performance expose themselves to business risks that can cost them clients, employees, and investors. The cost to mitigate issues arising from the negative impacts of an organization’s business activities and the activities of its suppliers have been known to be very costly. Understanding this, the need to balance profit-making activities with activities that benefit the environment and society at large becomes justifiable.
