What is ESG and Why Do We Care?
ESG is a topic we’re hearing come up more and more lately, especially as it relates to investors. If you’re unfamiliar, ESG stands for Environmental, Social and Governance. At its core, ESG is helping companies and investors understand how ESG non-financial factors impact a company and how a company impacts those factors as well.
In this episode of Compliance Crosswalk, hosts Arti Lalwani and Blaise Wabo are joined by Leela Ramnath, Head of ESG at Warburg Pincus, to discuss what exactly ESG is and what we can expect for the future of ESG over the next ten years. They highlight the reasons why ESG has become such a huge trend and provide practical tips for organizations looking to implement ESG reporting frameworks and standards.
