According to this article I was reading in Sustainability Magazine, between 2018-2021 alone, inflows into global sustainability funds rose from $5 billion to nearly $70 billion. But it highlighted that despite this focus there is still not enough attention paid to the Governance element in ESG.
When we look at any Greenwashing articles recently we see a lot of unfounded or substantiated claims. Many times we see lacking Governance structure that underpins a strong Sustainability strategy.
It is critical when we think of the upcoming reporting needs under the CSR Directive that companies start now to ensure they have a clear governance model in place to help with their reporting needs.
At Intertek we truly believe this is the starting point to achieving success with a Sustainability Strategy - sound Governance model. Our Total Sustainability Assurance model helps companies gap assess where they stand today against all ten pillars that make a sound sustainable business.
