How to Determine ESG Objectives and ​Measure Success

ESG reporting is now an essential part of corporate leadership as it positively impacts a company’s reputation, legal standing, and financial performance. EHS professionals are well-equipped to lead ESG initiatives, as they are already familiar with ESG-related programs and have access to a wealth of data. By following a five-step process, you can put together an ESG strategy that supports your organization’s mission.

  1. The first step is to develop your ESG mission.
  2. Next, you’ll need to determine your objectives and strategies for measurement to support this mission.
  3. Once you’ve developed your measurement strategies, identify your organization’s risks and opportunities.
  4. To ensure a successful ESG strategy, you’ll want to gain buy-in from both senior leadership and your employees.
  5. And finally comes reporting and transparency to build trust in the organization’s commitment to sustainability.

For EHS professionals, these five steps provide a roadmap for success. By making fundamental changes, you can build trust among stakeholders, bolster reputation, and enhance financial performance.

Many organizations have a lot of this data at their fingertips.

Organizations can capitalize on their existing data to strengthen their ESG programs. Evaluating data and flowing it into your reporting framework can pinpoint areas for improvement and tackle obstacles that stand in your way. Reporting is the first step towards transparency, and it means communicating your ESG ambitions and following through. Using your reporting standards, you can keep your stakeholders in the loop as progress is made.

Keeping your ESG data organized, up-to-date, and transparent is no easy task.

ESG is an essential part of any success story, and transparency into the data and goals companies have for their environmental, social, and governance policies allows for sustainable growth. Collecting and measuring data can help you create actionable strategies that lead to sustainable development.
