Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) initiatives have become essential and viable activities of corporations because of the on-going increase in concerns, awareness and interest for environmental, social, and governance issues. The exploitation and depletion of natural resources and consequential alterations in climatic circumstances is also impacting the ecosystem at a rate that we as global citizens cannot ignore. This situation have compelled corporate entities to review their roles and responsibilities in resource depletion and take a more active role on conservation related matters. In view of this PMC have also recently given more focus on sustainability and governance by incorporating ESG as an important overall company objective.
