What is an ESG score?

What is an ESG Score

The phrase ESG Reporting was coined in 2005 to refer to how companies adhere to modern environmental, social and governance standards. According to the Harvard Business Review, “’Environmental’ disclosures include greenhouse gas emissions, water usage, waste disposal, and more. ‘Social’ disclosures include diversity, labor relations, product safety, employee health and safety, community development, and more.” ESG scores provide valuable information about companies for their customers, investors and communities, and paying attention to them is a great way to establish trust and loyalty while becoming good global citizens

Reading with V4H

Books on our Verb for Humanity reading list are chosen by our members for our members. Our book list is meant to be a diverse collection of voices that promote V4H values. Every month, we get together and have a discussion on how reading the selection has encouraged us, what changes we need to make, and anything we can gain from the lessons learned.

“You cannot fix a problem you do not know you have.” So begins Emmanuel Acho in his essential guide to the truths Americans need to know to address the systemic racism that has recently electrified protests in all fifty states. “There is a fix,” Acho says. “But in order to access it, we’re going to have to have some uncomfortable conversations.”

A Woman of No Importance: The Untold Story of the American Spy Who Helped Win World War II (by Sonia Purnell)

A Woman of No Importance is the breathtaking story of how one woman's fierce persistence helped win the war. A never-before-told story of Virginia Hall, the American spy who changed the course of World War II, from the author of Clementine. We chose this book because of the profound importance of supporting and nourishing the position of women in leadership.

The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness by Michelle Alexander

The New Jim Crow is a stunning account of the rebirth of a caste-like system in the United States, one that has resulted in millions of African Americans locked behind bars and then relegated to a permanent second-class status—denied the very rights supposedly won in the Civil Rights Movement. This book was pivotal in our discussions, as many of our V4H members learned a great deal of history revolving around these topics that have taken over national headlines in recent years.
