Environmental, social, and governance (ESG)

ESG stands for environmental, social, and governance, a set of standards indicating an organization’s sustainable and ethical business practices. ESG issues include addressing natural-resource scarcity, climate change, income equality, and social justice, among other topics and priorities. While these issues often reside outside traditional performance metrics such as growth and profitability, those who stake investment money, employment, or time in a company want assurance the organization is taking responsible positions and actions on important ESG issues. Barr’s environmental professionals can help identify an ESG strategy that fits your organization, as well as develop and implement programs to pursue your strategy and help you monitor, measure, and report as necessary to verify you are doing the right things right and satisfy your investors and other stakeholders.
