ESG Health Check

Get a snapshot of your current environment, social and governance (ESG) status with a health check.

Designed to efficiently measure the environmental, social and governance performance of an organization, supply chain, or investment portfolio, our ESG health check gives you an objective snapshot of the current status of ESG management and risks, to help you move forwards on ESG effectively.

What are the benefits of an SGS ESG health check?

Designed for organizations that have recently started implementing their ESG strategies and wish to get a snapshot and evaluation of their current ESG performance, a health check helps you to:

  • Quickly understand your strengths and weaknesses
  • Obtain objective recommendations
  • Reduce operational and reputational risks earlier
  • Increase access to new investors
  • Refine ESG tactics based on current status
  • Optimize ESG resources at the earliest stage

How is it done?

Interviews with individuals in leadership roles and site tours are carried out to evaluate your current ESG performance levels. An ESG health check reveals:

  • The ESG fundamentals or framework in place
  • The ESG metrics and targets that are being managed and tracked
  • The missing areas essential to your ESG practices
  • Your organization’s ESG policies and management processes

ESG health checks are important for the wellness of your ESG strategy. Our experts are committed to conducting the checks, based on your needs, to identify the material ESG risks and develop tailored actions plans for improvement.

What will I get after an ESG health check?

On completion, you will receive a report, identifying strengths and weaknesses based on ESG criteria relevant to your organization or your suppliers. Objective recommendations can also be given.

Delve Deeper into Your ESG Status

An ESG health check gives you a quick overview of your current ESG status based on the available information. When your ESG maturity level rises, you may want to delve deeper into your status with our ESG gap analysis. This gives you full findings, recommendations and a road map for your ESG strategies.
