Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Assessment

Achieving meaningful progress on measures of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) is critical for organizations of every size and sector. These pillars are a growing priority for employees and consumers — and face growing scrutiny from regulators and investors.

The good news is that ESG is an ongoing journey: Success is not an endpoint — it’s the progress you make along the way that matters. This assessment will help you to better understand your progress on ESG and provide practical guidance to help you improve your maturity based on eight priorities for adoption and implementation. It has not been designed to prepare your organization for regulatory or legislative compliance. Rather, questions and recommendations align with MNP’s Sustainability Maturity Model and will inform further conversations internally and with your MNP advisor.
