In brief: Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues have grown in importance in the eyes of stakeholders in 2020, and this trend is likely to continue to grow in the coming years. Boards must work closely with their stakeholders to ensure that communications on ESG are direct, clear, and thoughtful. This brief, written by Broadridge Financial Solutions and originally appearing in the 2020 Governance Outlook: Projections of Emerging Board Matters, provides boards with tools to engage all stakeholders on their companies’ ESG policies and progress.

This resource can help your board to

  • communicate ESG policies and practices to stakeholders effectively,
  • identify key stakeholder groups to connect with on strategy, and
  • evaluate the organization’s ESG practices.
