    Too many companies have embraced a "box-ticking" culture and fail to see any value from their ESG efforts. George Serafeim has identified the five-pronged approach for companies to better manage and govern resources allocated to ESG issues.

    1) Think ESG as a competitive advantage
    2) Create accountability for ESG throughout the organization
    3) Identify a corporate purpose and build a culture around it
    4) Give ESG responsibilities to core business leaders
    5) Use impact weighted accounting metrics for better decision making and to attract aligned investors

    What do you think is missing? - Why has ESG not been a reporting requirement by the SEC?
