EC incorporates fundamental environmental, social, and governance (ESG) principles with traditional commercially-oriented benchmarking into an organization’s enterprise risk—and opportunity—management framework. Three principles underlie this framework:
- Performance benchmarking driven by stakeholder values: EC aligns social enterprise activities with underlying business competencies, operating objectives and investment goals that are material to each stakeholder;
- Quantifiable metrics that assess total financial, social, and operating returns: EC is committed to robust performance tracking across all relevant return objectives--comprehensive ROI tracking;
- Managing Risk as Opportunity: EC leverages enterprise-wide risk management tools to identify upside opportunities that minimize downside vulnerabilities.
