Acting on ESG impacts and opportunities is critical to good business today and in the future. It is no longer about simple compliance or addressing the demands of investors; businesses should work for all - the planet, consumers, employees and their community. ESG actions, taken systematically, can help a business stay in business in the long run. That is sustainability: pursuing business activities that operate within planetary limits, enhance social foundations and contribute to the bottom line. 

Professor Jennifer Howard-Grenville

There is no time to waste. To avoid continued climate crises, we all need to work together to achieve individual and collective climate commitments. A tailored ESG programme is a key step towards achieving your net zero goals and demonstrating a commitment to a sustainable and equitable future that consumers are increasingly demanding. Take action and set the standard for your company and industry.

Professor Christopher Marquis

Societal activism is a key driver of business success, especially in our changing world. Consumers want to shop with and the best talent want to work at organisations who truly care about diversity and inclusion, who champion social responsibility and who have a positive impact in their communities.

Professor Lionel Paolella
