Technology for ESG

Building a sustainable, resilient business.

58% of employees consider a company’s social and environmental practices when deciding where to work.
Research by McKinsey found that Over 70% of people said they would pay an additional 5% for a green product.

Technology for ESG

ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) is a set of standards measuring a business's impact on society, the environment, and how transparent and accountable it is.
Technology is at the core of any modern business and, if applied effectively, can often help businesses improve their ESG.

Why is ESG Important?

There are a wide range of benefits for businesses with strong Environmental, Social and Governance policies and practices.
Cost Savings

Businesses with strong ESG performance have a much lower incidence rate of fraud, litigation, customer attrition and revenue shortfalls.

Drive Profits

ESG standards help businesses use resources more efficiently, lowering overhead expenses and reducing waste.

Attract Talent

Post-pandemic career decisions are becoming increasingly value based. People want to work for businesses with values that align with their own.
