About the community

The ESG opportunity

The ESG challenge 

Expectations of organisations (from customers, shareholders, staff and regulators) around Environmental, Social and Governance have never been greater. From climate change and biodiversity to circular economy; from human rights to native title and from privacy to consumer protection, organisations must increasingly demonstrate clear goals and responses to the ESG challenge.

As expectations rise, so do requirements for disclosure, transparency and accountability. Organisations must also come to terms with the shift from voluntary, ‘in principle’, compliance to the adoption of mandatory obligations and disclosure. 

The number of responsive frameworks and guidelines is increasing as organisations strive to adapt to fast-changing laws and standards. It can be time-consuming and confusing for organisations to ensure they’re on track. 

The ESG opportunity

As organisations seek to expand their ESG activities, building a better understanding of the changing landscape and best practice is key. Improved ESG performance can deliver significant benefits to organisations including: 

  • Access to capital
  • Expanding business opportunities and partners
  • Positively impacting employee and customer engagement and retention
  • Maintain brand and reputation 
  • Positively impacting regulator engagement
