ESG implementation

The implementation of ESG assumes that entrepreneurs should strive for maximum profit while maintaining care for the natural environment, social responsibility and corporate governance. The system requires attention to the entire supply chain, including the origin of the product and the carbon footprint emitted.

Why is it worth choosing to implement ESG?

The biggest benefits of implementing ESG include:

  • increased credibility for stakeholders,
  • no negative impact on deepening problems on a local and global scale,
  • competitive advantage,
  • acting in accordance with Polish law and EU directives,
  • a greater chance of obtaining financing from the bank,
  • easier access to investors' funds,
  • improving the image and gaining the trust of younger generations – such customers and investors pay more attention to the issue of sustainable development,
  • the possibility of optimizing the costs incurred by the company.

The implementation of ESG by specialists allows you to simplify the process and obtain the above-mentioned benefits at a lower cost.

ESG strategy and the law

Until a few years ago, ESG implementation was an optional solution. Currently, this is a requirement that is being implemented gradually. The new obligations for 2024 will initially apply to companies already subject to the Non-Financial Reporting Directive. In the following years, they will be extended to large companies – with more than 250 employees, with a balance sheet total of more than EUR 20 million or with annual revenues of more than EUR 40 million.

By 2029, the obligation to implement ESG is also to be extended to companies from third countries that generate net sales revenues in the European Union of at least EUR 150 million.

How is ESG implemented?

ESG implementation must follow a defined process. At the beginning, we perform an audit that allows us to determine the way the company operates and the processes taking place in it. At this stage, we prepare an ESG strategy, analyze company documents and conduct research within the organization. We carry out surveys among managerial staff. At the end of the audit, we prepare an ESG report and assess the company's activities in this area to date.

The next step is to gain engagement. We implement the strategy and take care of communication with internal stakeholders. We focus on management, managers and employees. We analyze their readiness to organize ESG training and workshops.

Next, we examine the impact of ESG and identify areas that may pose a threat to people, the planet and the company's values. We identify stakeholders and their needs, so we can determine the importance of ESG in a given environment. Finally, we conduct optimization training for those responsible for implementing the strategy. We supervise the entire process to ensure that new solutions are implemented in the right way and allow you to achieve the aforementioned benefits.
