    ESG challenges for business

    There are three key areas where Mercer can help create successful ESG strategies and guide implementation.
    • People sustainability

      For a company to present itself as a sustainable, it needs to be doing everything it can to be a responsible employer. Mercer offers around 40 separate best practice audit, diagnostic and delivery solutions, for areas from D&I to living wage analysis to support the development of your ESG strategy.


    • Sustainable Investment

      ESG is more than fund selection. Asset owners need to decide their ESG priorities and ensure alignment between stakeholders, so they can focus on investment decisions to generate truly sustainable long term returns.


    • Workforce transformation

      It is easy to assign sustainability tasks to executives but far more challenging to ensure responsibility cascades downwards. Organisations will fail to meet their sustainability objectives unless they set goals and organise themselves to achieve these goals.
