The Responsible Enterprise
Where citizenship and commerce meet
More and more companies today are undertaking environmental and social efforts to complement traditional business activities, using these efforts as catalysts to improve everything they do—from innovation and customer relationships to brand building and beyond. The results? Higher profits. Lower costs and risks. Increased shareholder value. Competitive advantage. And, though it may not be the primary motive, a measurable positive impact on society and the planet.
Embedding environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into your strategy and business practices isn’t just good corporate citizenship. It’s smart business.
