ESG is now a 'must do'. Stakeholders - from consumers, to investors and regulators - are increasingly demanding that businesses transparently and ethically deliver benefits to people and planet in their pursuit of profit.
ESG stands for Environmental, Social, and Governance. It’s a framework used by investors to measure the non-financial and ethical value creation and sustainability of businesses.
Climate change, natural resources, pollution and waste, environmental opportunities.
Human capital, product liability, stakeholder opposition, social opportunities.
Corporate governance, corporate behaviour, trustworthy methods and decision making.
There is a huge ground swell towards ESG; make no mistake, this megatrend is not going anywhere.
Recent events - from climate-change triggered disaster to inequality-fuelled social unrest - are driving growth in demand for businesses, processes and products that are beneficial for both the climate and society.
At VÖR we focus on how ESG can enhance our founders’ companies economics and their reputations in the eyes of both their customer base and potential investors.
We ensure founders recognise the value of engaging with sustainable development and ESG, weaving it into the fabric of their business from an early stage. This involves supporting innovators to develop their own ESG strategy; one which which aligns with their business and their beliefs.
VÖR maps all client projects to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The work we do links most commonly to the achievement of Goal 8, specifically goal 8.3.
Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all.
Promote development-oriented policies that support productive activities, decent job creation, entrepreneurship, creativity and innovation, and encourage the formalisation and growth of micro-, small- and medium-sized enterprises, including through access to financial services.
We always work proactively with our founders to help them consider whether there are angles relating to other SDGs that can further deliver on their ESG promises.
At VÖR, we set ourselves our own ambitious ESG targets and are working towards achieving B-Corp status for our business too.
