Environment, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG) refer to a set of criteria that investors use to evaluate a company’s sustainability and ethical impact. ESG takes into account the company’s environmental performance, social responsibility, and corporate governance practices.
The environmental aspect of ESG evaluates a company’s impact on the natural world, including its use of resources, energy consumption, and carbon footprint. Moreover, social factors refer to practices such as a company’s labour practices, human rights records, and community involvement while corporate governance factors include a company’s board structure, executive compensation, and transparency.
Graana.com has released its ESG (Environment, Social and Corporate Governance) Annual Report 2022. It is one of the first companies in Pakistan to adopt Environment, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG) as part of its efforts towards sustainable business practices.
