ESG is here to stay.

“Regardless of the moral imperative, corporate leaders are recognizing the potential investment, regulatory, and legal risks of doing nothing when it comes to addressing issues like climate change, diversity and inclusion, or corporate transparency.”

Transparency has never been more crucial. With companies under constant pressure to promote and achieve social action-oriented goals now more than ever, Environmental, Social, and Governance statistics have become increasingly important. Investors, regulators, and customers alike want and expect companies to disclose data on ESG alongside their goals and efforts. Knowing this, companies must take action. The real question most companies struggle with is: Where to begin?

“ESG-related lawsuits are also on the rise, ranging from diversity, equity and inclusion and #MeToo-related litigation on the social side, to litigation concerning companies’ roles in global climate change on the environmental side.“

To meet investors, regulators, and customers’ needs, companies must be intentional about achieving their social goals. This is where ideascape can help by acting as your partner in developing  an integrated ESG strategy that includes goals, benchmarks, and transparency.
