ESG Maturity Assessment

Often, organizations know that they want to do “something” about sustainability for many reasons such as

  • Better alignment to the organization’s vision
  • Better attractiveness for all stakeholders ranging from customers to employers
  • Simply: a requirement within the value chain, as regulations and business customers may request ESG to be considered
  • Generating economic contributions with increasing Greenhouse Gas Emission costs such as taxes or CO2 eq certificates
  • Better reputation
