ESG

Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG) refers to the three central factors in measuring the sustainability and societal impact of a company’s operations, as facilitated by making an investment in a company or business. The data is used to guide investors seeking to avoid investment in companies, whose operations are having harmful impacts in any of these two categories, and whose governance arrangements are not exercising effective control over these impacts. It is also used as one of the considerations for assessing the investor’s risks and returns from investing in a company, as firms with poor ESG records are expected in light of necessary global policy changes to lose value in future. Opagio provides unique reporting methods for managers to track work activity at any relevant business process, which contributes significantly to an ESG impact, to enable better control of damaging impacts and better data sharing with investors.
