Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Internal Audit

ΠΕΡΙΓΡΑΦΗ

Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) considerations have become one of the most pressing elements within the financial markets landscape, driven by both investor demand and regulatory scrutiny it can be tempting to think of ESG as limited to the environment and climate change. 

But it is so much more than that: covering everything from social issues such as a business’s operating practices towards labour, talent, product safety, data privacy and managing cyber threats, to governance issues like board diversity, executive pay, and business ethics, and everything in between. 

Independent investors and financial institutions use the ESG scores as a proxy to determine the returns of the company and its risks. Higher ESG scores translate into better opportunities and healthy profits. ESG scores help enterprises create more sustainable solutions and attract greater talents. 

One of the significant benefits of achieving high ESG performance is its positive influence on financial factors. Improved financial performance, reflected in accounting statements and stock returns, directly contributes to the firm’s value calculation, resulting in higher shareholder value.
