Over the past two decades, it has become critical that both private sector businesses and government demonstrate their attention to environmental conservation by incorporating sustainable practices into their planning and infrastructure development plans. Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) criteria are used to evaluate an organization’s operations and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) performance in a manner that is connected to the organization’s mission.
The first step to incorporating an ESG framework is assessing materiality to identify ESG issues and metrics most important to the organization. This process entails identifying, categorizing and prioritizing important ESG topics to determine which issues are most relevant to DoD stakeholders and the mission. Through assessing materiality, Noblis identifies metrics and assigns values to those metrics so DoD can ensure sustainability efforts are properly addressed.
Noblis’ expertise in ESG reporting is founded in over a decade of experience developing sustainability reports for multiple federal agencies, including the DoD.
