Serving the Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Industries
The consultants at Yellowstone Strategies have several years of experience working with industries that are often the focus of ESG ratings and scrutiny, such as oil and gas production, electric utilities, and mining.
Increasingly, investors are seeking to influence corporate behavior through environmental, social, and governance (ESG) reporting and ranking, shareholder resolutions, and divestiture campaigns. Today, over $12 trillion is invested in ESG funds in the United States, a figure that is expected to continue to grow rapidly. ESG pressures are forcing companies to make commitments in these areas far beyond those required by government regulation.
For example, 240 U.S. Fortune 500 have now set renewable energy or carbon-reduction targets. Many of these companies are responding to investor pressure, public expectations for corporate behavior, and formal scrutiny of their behavior in the form of annual ESG ratings and shareholder initiatives. Yellowstone has a profound understanding of the ways these industries operate, the ESG challenges they face, and how to help companies anticipate changing ESG expectations, design strategies to get ahead of this trend, and thread the needle between meeting investor ESG expectations and maintaining a profitable business.
Yellowstone Strategies has first-hand knowledge of and have developed ESG and CRS policies for multi-billion-dollar organizations.
