So, what is ESG? ESG refers to three key non-financial categories in evaluating a company's risk profile and performance – environment, social, and governance. With so many international regulatory acronyms and rating systems, navigating the world of ESG can seem confusing. ESG is also evolving, with disclosure and rating criteria that can vary based on various factors. That's why ESG is unique to each company, with different starting points and different opportunities. Most companies already have some ESG practices in place, so no company ever starts from scratch.
