ethOs Announces Launch of ESG Consulting Services
Holmes Murphy subsidiary looks to position, support, and align clients with Environmental, Social, and Governance standards and regulations
Today, ethOs, a member of the Holmes Murphy brand family, announced the launch of a new, important, and timely offering called ESG Consulting Services.
For many companies, the term ESG may be relatively new but growing in popularity with organizational leadership teams. ESG stands for Environmental, Social, and Governance, and investors are increasingly applying these non-financial factors as part of their analysis process to identify material risk and growth opportunities.
“Ready or not, the ESG era is already upon us and growing in emphasis, and ethOs understands the importance of helping companies prepare for changes,” said Ali Payne, President of ethOs. “In fact, 2020 and 2021 were historic years for global regulation related to sustainability disclosure. In the U.S., the Securities and Exchange Commission is placing a large emphasis on climate change, human capital, board diversity, cybersecurity risk, and ESG funds as key issues for policies and rulemaking. And, as we all know, the global pandemic has brought to light the importance of the WHOLE employee, their experience with a company, and their overall wellbeing. Companies are going to need to address each area of ESG sooner rather than later to support their internal employees, as well as to be competitive, and we’re excited to say we have the experts on hand to help.”
ESG covers everything from a company’s energy use; water usage; waste; and pollution to its labor; diversity, equity, and inclusion policies; employee health, safety, and wellbeing; pay equity; data integrity and cyber security; and internal controls and audits, just to name a few areas. As part of its ESG Consulting Services, the ethOs team can help companies learn how to leverage ESG as part of their purpose, people, culture, brand, and overall value proposition while also ensuring they’re properly positioned to be competitive.
“While ESG is still evolving and quite dynamic, the good news is that many companies are already excelling with certain components of ESG. They may simply just not know it,” said Payne. “Through a 7-step process, our goal will be to highlight those, help companies expand upon them, identify any new opportunities or challenges to address, and assist them with the development of an enterprise strategy that aligns with United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs).”
EthOs has a team of experts with more than 30 years of ESG experience who can consult with companies, position them to be ready and aligned with future ESG regulations, and highlight their ESG efforts to support the organizations, stakeholders, suppliers, communities, and the investors they work with.
