Interim ESG Manager

Why companies should invest in more sustainability now

Our world is changing and confronts us with a wide variety of crises. One of these is the climate crisis, which is forcing us to live and do business more sustainably in many areas. In this sense, however, the term sustainability extends far beyond climate and environmental protection to include social issues and governance. In this context, the term ESG is increasingly coming into focus. But what does it mean and why should companies of all sizes address ESG sooner rather than later?

It should be clear to companies that if they fail to meet ESG criteria, or meet them only inadequately, they can no longer be economically successful in the long term.

Why choose to engage an interim ESG Manager?

If your company has so far only dealt with the topic of ESG to a limited extent, reporting standards such as GRI, SASB, TCFD or DNK provide an important first indication of which topics and criteria are crucial. They show where there is a need for action. Interim ESG Managers bring the necessary expert knowledge for the individual subareas – for example, when it comes to climate protection, CO2 reduction or human rights. They are familiar with the most important reports in order to subsequently identify the weak points and risks of your company – but also to recognize where your company is already well positioned.
