Governance and the CROA

 We are all aware of the term, “environmental, social and governance” – also known as ESG.  It describes the three central factors used in the investment community to measure the sustainability and ethical impact of an organization.  Although the environmental and social elements are very familiar to the CR practitioner, we may struggle at times to appreciate “governance.” 

Governance is defined as a “system by which an organization makes and implements decisions in pursuit of its objectives” (ISO 26000: 2010 – Guidance on Social Responsibility).  The definition is broad.  So how does governance work in our day-to-day activities within the organizations that each of us belong to?
