Issues such as climate change, resource scarcity, digitalization and sustainability present clear risks and opportunities for companies, regardless of their size or industry. In addition, the issue of sustainability is playing an increasingly important role in society at large. Today, almost all stakeholders expect companies to operate sustainably and to analyze, address — and transparently communicate — their environmental and social impacts on the environment, the economy and society. The framework for this is ESG, which stands for Environmental, Social, Governance. In the financial world as well as in companies, this term has meanwhile become established when talking about sustainability.
While corporations, large and listed companies have already firmly anchored ESG in their corporate strategy, many small or medium-sized companies are only just starting out. There is a lack of funding, expertise, dedicated resources — and sometimes the will — to pull off this feat. Financial investors, who can provide both capital and expertise, are often the right partner here to help entrepreneur-led, small or medium-sized companies implement ESG factors and promote their sustainable development.
