Podcast: ESG and business strategy - Why corporate purpose is key to demonstrating authenticity

This podcast explores how business strategy can align with ESG. Azadeh Nassiri and Jeff Twentyman walk us through the key issues in demonstrating authenticity.

ESG has become an essential part of the business strategy of our clients and many other companies. Broader concepts that inform the value of the company such as climate change, sustainability, diversity and social impact have the power to make or break a company’s reputation, as well as its investment potential. How, then, can those companies that wish to present well on ESG ensure that these issues are at the heart of their strategy and be communicated to stakeholders?
 
Financing partner, Azadeh Nassiri and Corporate partner and Head of Sustainability, Jeff Twentyman discuss why commitment and authenticity are crucial to an effective ESG strategy and the increasing importance of aligning corporate purpose and values with tangible, sustainability goals. They also consider the benefits that derive from a strong ESG strategy, including company value and reduced cost of capital.
