Frequently asked questions

What is an ESG value chain assessment?

An ESG value chain assessment is a comprehensive evaluation of a company’s environmental, social, and governance (ESG) impacts throughout its entire value chain. It involves identifying and analysing ESG risks and opportunities at various stages, from raw material sourcing to product/service delivery, and beyond.

Why is conducting an ESG value chain assessment important for businesses?

ESG value chain assessments help businesses understand their broader impact on society and the environment. By identifying ESG risks and opportunities, companies can improve their sustainability performance, enhance brand reputation, attract socially responsible investors, and adapt to changing stakeholder expectations.

What does the ESG value chain typically encompass?

The ESG value chain includes all activities and processes a company engages in to bring its products or services to the market. This includes sourcing of raw materials, production processes, supply chain management, distribution, customer use, and end-of-life disposal or recycling.

Are there any established ESG frameworks for conducting value chain assessments?

Yes, several widely used ESG frameworks exist, such as the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB), and Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). These frameworks provide guidelines for assessing and reporting on ESG performance, including value chain considerations.

Can ESG value chain assessments help companies with regulatory compliance?

Yes, ESG value chain assessments can help companies comply with evolving ESG regulations and requirements. Governments and regulatory bodies worldwide are increasingly focusing on ESG issues, and companies that proactively address these concerns are better positioned for compliance and reduced regulatory risks.

Remember that ESG value chain assessments are not a one-time activity; they should be regularly updated and improved as businesses evolve and adapt to new challenges and opportunities in their sustainability journey.
