The Bermuda Stock Exchange (BSX) has launched an Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) initiative that aims to empower sustainable and responsible growth for its member companies, listings and the wider community. ESG criteria are standards for a company’s operations that investors use to screen potential investments. Environmental criteria consider how a company’s operations impact the natural environment and climate. Social criteria examine how a company manages relationships with employees, suppliers, customers and the communities where it operates. Governance deals with a company’s leadership, executive pay, audits, internal controls and shareholder rights.
