Mindfulness of the environment, social factors and effective systems of governance is becoming ever more important in the modern world of business.
All of the most successful organisations understand this, and great strides are being made in the direction of improved ESG every day.
To celebrate this, Irwin Mitchell are sponsoring the Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance Award to be presented to a worthy winner at the SKS 250 private dinner and awards ceremony.
We’ve put together a list 10 companies from the SKS 250 Listing who are driving this trend of striving for better ESG.
