Sustainable Development and ESG
The scope of sustainable development is broader than ESG. It is a blueprint for achieving global development and involves resource balance within and between generations. The United Nations has published 17 sustainable development goals to encourage activities.
Both sustainable development and ESG involve environmental and social aspects, but ESG has been directly related to enterprises and is a standard for measuring financial, environmental and social performance. Sustainable development favors all global stakeholders.
