the ESG INSTITUTE
a GLOBAL Environmental, Social and governance KNOWLEDGE REPOSITORY
We are driven by the vision to create an international online Environmental, Social and Governance knowledge portal managed by leading governance practitioners for the purpose of providing globally acclaimed awareness, education and training journeys.
We aim to become the primary global resource for ESG knowledge and training.
Warren Buffet coined the saying, "When the tide goes out you can see who's swimming naked."
The global pandemic has exposed the full extent of social inequalities, food insecurity, environmental challenges and poor governance internationally. Never before has sustainable development and responsible investment been more important.
We utilise a wide range of media channels for the purposes of generating ESG content via discussions, presentations, podcasts, workshops and publications, utilising and leveraging both internal resources and capacity as well as external resources derived from formal and informal international associations and collaborations.
AFFILIATIONS AND COLLABORATIONS
A cornerstone of the ESG Institute is its relationships with international academic institutions, professional organisations, expert consultants and relevant institutions. These will be added regularly as we grow and expand.
