A core part of any ESG initiative is employee training. Training all staff transforms ESG from an isolated activity undertaken by a small group of staff into a process that is deeply embedded into an organisation’s culture. Further, ESG rating agencies and reporting frameworks use training as a measure of ESG effectiveness.
VinciWorks’ ESG awareness training is designed to give your employees an overview of what ESG means, why it’s important, and what you can do to help your company achieve its ESG goals.

On the most basic level, ESG training teaches users what ESG is, why it's important and explains the core concepts around ESG. Training raises users’ awareness of how ESG impacts an organisation’s strategy and financial considerations. There might be a variety of courses covering ESG on different levels such as an introductory course giving basic explanations of the factors and a more in-depth course that will cover areas such as disclosure, financial analysis, climate risks, and training on the social and governance parts of ESG such as diversity and inclusion, customer satisfaction, policy making, and more.
A good course will be tailored to the user’s role and provide users with an understanding of the personal role each employee plays in their company's ESG initiatives.
ESG did not come from one single source. It wasn’t sparked by a new law, although regulations are being developed to embed ESG reporting. It was spurred by institutional investors, but has grown into something of an industry itself. ESG is set to play an increasing role in why investors, stakeholders and even potential employees choose to associate themselves with a company. Our training provides a singular measure of how well a company is able to respond to ESG-related challenges, from regulatory faults and fines to environmental disasters and social disruption.
