We move from crisis to crisis, our climate is changing, and growing civil unrest could lead to violence or even civil wars. We need a long-term vision to bring hope and sustainable, real solutions. Environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors lie at the heart of many of the problems we face, and therein also lie solutions.
We hope this book will help companies that are seeking such solutions, wanting to make a more positive contribution to the impact economy that considers the impact of our actions, and balances the needs of people and companies with the health of the planet.
Operating with Positive Impact provides an understanding of ESG and a roadmap to help company directors, managers, leaders and specialists identify the strategies, systems and practices they can implement to achieve more positive impact. It provides in-depth analyses of ESG factors, case studies and practical advice on transforming business according to ESG principles for long-term sustainability, including strategy, operations, governance, transactions, legislation and reporting.
"This book is [...] a very timely overview of this rapidly evolving and complex subject matter. It is practical, precise and comprehensive, and I hope it can bring very concrete insights and inspiration to many in the corporate world. Navigating the ESG complexity is now a priority for all us."
