Environmental, Social Responsibility and Corporate Governance (ESG) has become a crucial yardstick for corporate reporting.

With the increasing number of ESG-related regulations around the world, more studies on the correlation among the application of good ESG practices, increased revenue growth, and the disclosure of ESG performance information by companies has become a key factor when choosing partners to conduct business.

A recent study showed that more than 30% of companies have integrated ESG controls into their supplier and vendor selection process. This percentage is expected to grow rapidly over the next 5 years.

Validating ESG initiatives against established sustainability standards and being credibly recognized for them is not always an easily defined process.

Many companies are at a loss for how to convert their ESG goals and initiatives into an advantage when being considered against competitors by a potential business partner, and how to have that advantage visible by the market.
