Exploring the links between ESG supervision and performance

How do companies oversee the environmental, social and governance (ESG) aspects of their business and manage the associated risks? Different companies take different approaches. Some have board-level committees fully devoted to ESG and sustainability supervision; others integrate ESG oversight into existing committees. Some disclose their methods of managing and measuring ESG to a greater degree than others. To determine how these and other questions affect companies’ ESG performance, NN Investment Partners and governance services provider Glass Lewis conducted a joint study. This paper explores the study’s findings and the reasons underlying the links between ESG management and performance. By assessing the strength of these relationships and how they are influenced by factors such as region and industry, we aim to help investors make better decisions on where to invest their money for the most sustainable returns. The study conducted by NN IP and Glass Lewis examines the relationship between companies’ performance with regard to environmental, social and governance factors, and the characteristics of each company’s ESG supervisory structures.
