In his article titled (wait for it!) 4 Best Practices to Build Better ESG and Sustainability Programs, (available here), Jim discusses 4 best practices to build better ESG and sustainability programs (duh!). Here’s one of them:
Appoint a CSO or other sustainability leader
First, an organization should appoint—and empower—a leader for its ESG programs. Whether that person is exclusively responsible for sustainability programs or also assumes other responsibilities, they should have:
- expertise in the specific ESG areas the organization seeks to address;
- sufficient bandwidth to manage the ESG program, implement sustainability initiatives, and provide regular updates;
- the authority to make decisions;
- the power to implement new measures;
- accountability for the outcome of those measures;
- strong relationships and contacts throughout the organization; and
- visibility into the organization’s overall practices and operating procedures.
Without a designated CSO who possesses these qualities, ESG programs can quickly become unwieldy and ineffective.
