Why is ESG a Must for Startups Across All Industries?

ESG is quickly becoming the standard measuring tool for social and environmental impact. Why? International organizations require ESG compliance. Learning how to adequately report will be fundamental to any Startup’s global commercialization. 

Alacrity is dedicated to ESG programming because we want to help scale SMEs so they can be prepared for their own future, and participate in creating a brighter future for us all.

“If you are not aware of your own impact, you may find it difficult to find investment. Because investors want to put money into more sustainable businesses. We are seeing that governments, and financial institutions are investing in those who create impact.“
Burak Evren
VP of Sustainability
