MGI Worldwide ESG Promise

MGI Worldwide aims to help identify ESG best practices and resources that will help navigate the emerging and growing interest in Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance issues and opportunities. We have identified three areas that need separate consideration:

  • MGI Worldwide and its regional activities
  • Our member firm's businesses
  • The clients of our member firms

The changes that we implement now, however small, will in time make a positive difference. We look forward to working with member firms as we become more familiar with the elements and practicalities of ESG and how it needs to be more central to all of our decision making.

It can be overwhelming to know how to start considering your ESG strategy. In this document we have indicated just some of the many considerations involved in conducting an ESG assessment of your business. We hope this provides food for thought and prompts the beginning of a conversation within your business.

For your business to improve its environmental, social and governance practices and contribute towards the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, it is crucial to set a clear framework of ESG policy commitments. Without establishing clear standards across your organisation, it is difficult to implement your practices and to ensure that the practices of your colleagues, partners and suppliers uphold those company values.

Below is the ESGmark® template for structuring your own organisation’s code of conduct. ESGmark® have expanded on the UN and ILO principles to include further environmental, social and governance aspects that they feel are important to make sure our members are representing the very best ESG practices across industries. The template is not sector specific and will need altering to suit the specific needs/principles of your business.

Download the Establishing you ESG Policy Commitments from the ESGmark® Library HERE

This ESGmark® guide is intended to provide advice on how your business can audit its supply chain to ensure your products and partners uphold the same values as your organisation. It will set a framework for what you need to consider in your supply chain, what questions you need to ask, how to ask them and finally, what to do with these answers.

Download Auditing your Supply Chain from the ESGMark® library HERE

The ESGmark® website has a wealth of information available.  You can find quick guides in the library ranging from Diversity and Inclusion to Whistleblowing along with other ESG reports.
