The way organizations are being valued by investors and society is changing, and the environment in which they operate becoming increasingly competitive and subject to enhanced regulation. Recognizing the challenges facing organizations, and with a commitment to supporting sustainable growth, ESG Partners was founded.
ESG Partners provides expert guidance to companies and investors on the environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors that drive long-term, sustainable value. The unique needs of our clients are supported through the integration of ESG factors into business strategy, risk management, governance, and high-quality disclosures while leveraging global standards and demand-driven data solutions.
Our goal is to enable clients to become more resilient and competitive, attract talent and capital, create long-term value, and maximize impact across the value chain through purposeful alignment with ESG strategies. With a deep appreciation for collaboration and the ability to work across industry sectors, we assist companies and investors to embrace a strong sense of purpose and a commitment to stakeholders in a changing world where we can no longer use the past to predict the future.
We work with start-ups and early-stage investors, through to private, public and not-for-profit organizations in financial services, utilities, manufacturing, the energy sector, emerging technologies, and more.
