Why Managing ESG Practices And Their Impacts  Is Critical Today

In the past decade, ESG and its impacts have gone from being a trend to one of the biggest revolutions in business history. ESG performance and its related impacts are now being put on a level playing field with financial returns by stakeholders, including investors.  

The ESG train has left the station. Federal and global regulation of ESG is imminent, as are stakeholder expectations.  Having an integrated ESG plan today is as essential as an organization’s business, strategic and financial plan. Yet, in the USA 90% of organizations do not have a clearly defined ESG strategy, or know their ESG scores, impact risks or value creation opportunities - a potentially ruinous mistake.

Did you know, every day dozens of ratings agencies and stakeholders are collecting 3rd party ESG data and scoring your organization on ESG performance, leaving your company’s reputation, and its ability to do business, vulnerable to algorithms on many fronts? ​

To take control of your ESG narrative, you must have an integrated ESG strategy that aligns with your industry’s risks, value creation opportunities and stakeholder expectations. Siloed ESG data is no longer good enough, as it does not show how your organization is incorporating ESG risks and opportunities into future-proofing your business.

In a world where ESG-related risks and opportunities have become top of mind for stakeholders and investors, along with increasing ESG disclosure requirements, we keep asking why so many companies haven’t planned for a future that is already here. 

The response is severalfold: 

  • A lack of understanding of the ESG landscape, ranging from standards to scores to industry specific materiality issues. 

  • There has been no clear framework or regulatory requirement for ESG management and reporting

  • An inability to properly focus on ESG issues by CEOs/CFO’s due to lack of time in their day

  • CEOs/CFOs are not sure who to trust to guide them through their ESG journey, especially when the big consulting firms aren’t even doing it themselves

  • Some organizations have been addressing basic climate change and ESG issues but now recognize this is no longer good enough

Impakt IQ addresses all of the above issues and guides clients through each step of their ESG and impact journey, helping them manage and increase their ESG
score and positive impact to elevate their reputation and bottom line.
