Helping our clients to improve business practices and meet customer, investor and stakeholder demands.
Meeting Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) criteria has become an important goal for organisations. Customers and market demands are placing increased pressure on corporations to engage in more sustainable business practice, and investors are increasingly using ESG criteria to evaluate the companies in which they might want to invest.
Because ESG impacts all stakeholders in the corporate and investment sectors, our portfolio of ESG services aims to meet the needs of a variety of organisations, whatever their level of maturity, industry focus or need. SGS ESG Assurance Solutions provide a unique set of competencies that help our clients achieve specific targets and goals.
