Environmental, Social and Governance risk (ESG) has risen up the risk management agenda over the last few years as businesses realize the value of doing the right thing in the workplace.
The COVID-19 pandemic has pushed ESG practices even further into the spotlight and moved them from theoretical to practical concerns. Shareholders and future talent are now demanding to see how businesses manage risks associated with human capital, communities and the environment.
A company that has a good social reputation, that looks after its employees and pays attention to its carbon footprint will attract a workforce that will be motivated and encouraged to remain with them for the long term.
Since lockdown, the sudden shift in working practices to home-working and enforced change to business travel has meant that the steady upward shift in ESG practice has escalated dramatically.
How do risk managers ensure that these necessary changes are not just a knee-jerk reaction to the pandemic, but form part of a strategic and calculated long-term plan that will continue to enhance the reputation and the bottom line of their company going forward?
