2. ESG Strategy
Growing concerns about social and environmental issues has led to greater interest in how companies are governed. As good corporate citizens, companies are increasingly expected, as part of their corporate strategy, to consider its impact on the planet and its peoples, in addition to profits.
ESG metrics (including climate change and greenhouse gas emissions; energy efficiency and resource usage; pollution and waste; health and safety; diversity, inclusion and pay parity; stakeholder and community engagement; human rights; and ethics) are indicative of how a company influences or impacts the environment within which it operates and the way it is able to respond and manage risks and opportunities, as well as its resilience generally.
Although Happytel Retail Group Pty Ltd (“the Company”) is not currently legally required to provide ESG disclosures, it understands that its failure to proactively respond to ESG poses a commercial and reputational risk to the Company, and may adversely affect its sustainability. >> more
