ESG, is it just greenwashing?…an evening with Jonathan Wood

February 23, 2023 6:30 pm

ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) due diligence is becoming increasingly important for German businesses as it helps them identify and manage risks and opportunities related to their impact on the environment, society, and governance. By conducting ESG due diligence, companies can ensure that they are operating in a sustainable and responsible manner, which can lead to long-term financial benefits. Additionally, as more and more investors and consumers are becoming conscious of the impact of companies on society and the environment, ESG due diligence can help businesses attract and retain customers and investors. In short, ESG due diligence is not only the right thing to do for the planet and society, but it also makes good business sense.

Eliminating waste, duplicate capabilities in the supply chain and internal departments is critical to remain competitive in 2023 and beyond. Stakeholders including staff, customers and the wider public expect ever more maturity from enterprise and the public sector. The trick is; how do we make it fund itself, or even make the business more attractive to investors?!
