  2. Social metrics: These measure a company’s impact on society, including metrics such as labor practices, human rights, diversity and inclusion, community engagement, and customer satisfaction.
  3. Governance metrics: These measure a company’s management and governance practices, including metrics such as board composition, executive compensation, anti-corruption measures, and transparency.

Examples of specific metrics within these categories include:

  • Environmental metrics: carbon footprint, water usage intensity, renewable energy usage, hazardous waste management, and emissions reduction targets.
  • Social metrics: employee turnover, employee diversity, employee satisfaction, customer satisfaction, community investment, and human rights policies.
