Three letters with (what seems like) a million meanings. ESG is an acronym for Environment, Social, and Governance, – These three categories are commonly looked upon to indicate a company’s sustainability. Now, let us *stop here* for a moment, and define ‘sustainability’ – We have a tendency to correlate the word ‘sustainable’ with all things green, but when we talk about the sustainability of a company, we are referring to much more than that.

Sustainability goes hand in hand with longevity, trust, and reliability.
