Sustainable corporate governance: implementing ESG-compliant practices

Sustainable corporate governance: implementing ESG-compliant practices

The key to effective sustainability management

Effective sustainability management requires interdisciplinary collaboration and smooth processes across all areas of the company.
Those responsible for ESG often face immense challenges if sustainability-relevant information and data are not immediately available or key contacts are not involved.

What is ESG?

ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) stands for environmental, social and corporate governance. These are criteria that are used to evaluate companies in order to measure their sustainability and social responsibility.

  • Environmental refers to how a company deals with environmental issues such as climate change, resource consumption, pollution, etc.
  • Social relates to a company's relationships with its employees, suppliers, customers and the community in which it operates. This includes issues such as working conditions, diversity and inclusion, human rights, etc.
  • Governance refers to the way a company is managed and controlled, including issues such as transparency, ethical behavior, board structure, anti-corruption, etc.

The integration of ESG criteria into business practices is becoming increasingly important as investors and consumers place greater emphasis on sustainable and socially responsible business practices.

 

ESG-Reporting: challenges for medium-sized companies

As part of the EU ESG regulation, many new reporting and disclosure obligations must be observed as a result of the CSRD, LkSG, CSDDD and the EU taxonomy. The disclosure requirements of the CSRD and ESRS in particular pose enormous challenges for SMEs.

Due to the extension of the CSRD reporting obligation, up to 15,000 companies in Germany alone will be directly affected by the new disclosure requirements in future. Many more SMEs, as part of the value chain of companies already subject to reporting requirements, will also be indirectly obliged to make disclosures regardless of current areas of application.

Complying with these requirements in accordance with the directive poses a number of challenges:

  • Overview of the dynamic legislation in the area of sustainability:
    The ongoing changes and additions to ESG legislation present companies with the challenge of keeping up to date and adapting their strategies accordingly.

  • Knowledge deficits, capacity bottlenecks and interdisciplinary collaboration:
    Meeting ESG requirements requires extensive knowledge and interdisciplinary collaboration within the organization. However, there is often a lack of both the necessary expertise and human resources to fully meet the requirements.

  • Procurement and processing of ESG data:
    The collection and processing of environmental indicators such as CO2 emissions in particular presents many companies with considerable difficulties.The availability and quality of this data is often insufficient to ensure reliable reporting.

  • Avoiding greenwashing:
    When communicating sustainability efforts, there is a risk of unintentionally greenwashing.It is essential to report transparently and honestly on your own measures so as not to jeopardize the trust of stakeholders.

Achieving ESG conformity -
with cross-functional collaboration and Shop floor Management 

The "Shopfloor Management (SFM)" method, in combination with the digital SFM tool ValueStreamer®, can support the collection of sustainability data and the creation of transparency and efficient processes based on this data.
Its use plays a decisive role in data collection, active sustainability management and reporting.

These include:

  • The strategic derivation and deployment of ESG-compliant business practices and objectives.
  • The optimal interaction of the departments with the aim of an optimal, i.e. minimal but sufficient bureaucratic effort.
  • The simple, effective and efficient collection, aggregation and evaluation of data.
  • Tracking measures to achieve strategic goals and targets in terms of ESG/sustainability.
  • The standardization of processes by setting up digital twins, according to which the relevant processes for legally prescribed and ESG-compliant business practices must run as efficiently as possible.
