The TPI Story

ENVIRONMENTAL, SOCIAL AND CORPORATE CRITERIA (ESG)

Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG) is a process developed to evaluate a company's collective conscientiousness for social and environmental factors.

 

ESG is typically a score compiled from data collected surrounding specific metrics related to intangible assets within the enterprise.

 

Think of it as a  form of a corporate social credit score. 

Research shows that such intangible assets comprise an increasing percentage of future enterprise value.

Why Is ESG and Sustainability Important?

Sustainability is a foundational principle and underpinning of the current focus of companies, investors, and regulators. ESG are a subset of performance indicators that include sustainable, ethical, and corporate governance issues such as managing a company's carbon footprint and ensuring there are systems in place to ensure accountability.

ESG is an investment consideration used in risk assessment strategies incorporated into investment decisions and risk management processes. 

Companies that use ESG standards are more conscientious, manage risk, and are more likely to achieve long-term success. As a result, many organizations have established ESG initiatives as part of their corporate governance.
