ESG Awards 2023 now open for entries

08 December 2022

The 2023 Business & Finance Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) Awards, is now open for entries. Companies have until 27 January 2023 to submit an entry.

While sustainability is the most important and urgent issue of our times, it can mean different things to different companies. ESG provides a specific set of criteria, namely environmental, social and governance, that companies can measure, benchmark and report against.

ESG is vitally important because it now relates to internal practices and policies that lead to effective decision making and, in turn, facilitates sustainable top-line growth into the future.

The growing impetus to ensure ESG standards are met by companies has introduced a whole new range of ideas, solutions and products that are changing the way we do business.
