The abbreviation for environment, social and governance encompasses all the principal areas of sustainable operation for companies. The "E" covers the green aspect, the "S" internal aspects such as diversity, health protection and fair progression plus external commitments for a more just world and the "G" the way in which a company is managed (who checks to see that targets are achieved, what compliance measures are enforced, how are international standards such as the United Nations Guiding Principles observed – including in relation to suppliers).
