Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) is a framework within organisations focusing on their impact on environmental sustainability, social responsibility, and corporate governance. They integrate principles and metrics to evaluate performance, improve sustainability, and uphold ethical standards, aiming for positive societal and environmental outcomes alongside financial success.

ESG is an emerging concept poised for significant growth in the coming years as businesses increasingly emphasise their commitment to environmental and social responsibility.

Businesses seeking to offset their carbon footprint or demonstrate their social responsibility are turning to landowners for investment opportunities in rural areas. This may involve initiatives such as creating wildflower meadows or restoring habitats.

Additionally, companies may desire access to the land for their employees to enhance mental well-being on designated days each year. Each program should be customized to align closely with the company’s goals and developed collaboratively with the landowner involved.
