Outlast- How ESG can Benefit Your Business

Usually, blame for business failures is apportioned to external factors such as adverse business cycles, badly framed government regulations and lack of infrastructure. Often the causes lie within: from short term thinking to destruction of natural resources, and exploitation of labour. To outlast competition, build resilience, gain competitive advantage and achieve greater returns in the long run, businesses must improve their performance on material ESG metrics. Outlast: How ESG Can Benefit Your Business, co-authored by Dr Mukund Rajan is a clarion call to corporate leaders to follow the pathway of ESG.
