It's worth noting that the specific ESG practices and priorities may vary across different companies, depending on their size, geographical location, and business focus. On the understanding that sustainability encompasses more than just environmental concerns. Environmental Social Governance (ESG) is a system that has been implemented to help stakeholders (the investment community, customers, suppliers, and employees) become aware of and comprehend how an institution or organization manages risks and opportunities related to environmental, social, and governance criteria.
