Family-run businesses are well on their way to leading the global effort to achieve full ESG planning, reporting and execution.
Per this article and study, 62% of the companies interviewed globally (and 85% of those interviewed in the US) are already contributing to the ‘S’ by investing in their local community.
Approximately half (45%) of these family-run businesses also believe they can take a leadership role in leading the way in sustainable business practices, positively impacting the ‘E’ in ESG if they follow a globally-accepted sustainability program that others can also follow.
However, only 23% have developed and communicated a complete strategy.
Net, the article explains the desire is there.
All these family-run businesses need is a template and guidance on how to develop an overall strategy around their ESG goals.
The Edenark Group ISO 14001 sustainability certification / carbon neutral / ESG planning program provides that template and guidance.
