ESG: Environmental, social and governance

The world is changing. These days, clients, investors, employees, and other stakeholders all demand a new way of doing business. They respect an ethical approach that should be the cornerstone of everything we do. How we treat our clients. How we treat our people. How we care for the environment.
And they demand coherence and consistency in the way we structure our business strategy around an ESG matrix. National and supra-national regulations are also increasingly assertive in enforcing the principles and rules of conduct that should dictate the way businesses act.

For decades, and with varying degrees of intensity, the debate pitted profit against a commitment to respectful business ethics, the environment, social impact, and transparent and responsible governance. Today, we know that, far from compromising profit-making with a commitment to sustainability, these principles are instead requirements to achieve results sustainably at various levels. Of course, these results include the one that also must drive organisations: financial results. We are all on the same side: profitable, consolidated and financially sustainable businesses, not despite this agenda, but because of it.
