The purpose of the Environmental Social Governance (ESG) & Corporate Services Section Managing Committee is to provide opportunities to share in experiences, lessons learned, challenges, and successes of SGA member companies. This committee has two focuses; 1) measuring the sustainability and societal impact of an investment in a company and 2 ) activities that combine or consolidate certain enterprise-wide needed support services. The Committee evaluates issues and challenges and makes recommendations to the Executive Council on SGA’s policies, plans, and tactics for addressing identified challenges and opportunities.
