Early engagement with all stakeholders, including suppliers, subcontractors, and local communities, is key to helping construction companies excel at environmental, social, and governance (ESG). Companies that understand and engage with ESG initiatives now and demonstrate their ability and willingness at the tender stage will win more contracts and turn more profits. Companies that perform poorly in environmental and social issues likely do so due to poor governance.
