Drive Sustainability with ESG Reporting Solution

What is ESG?

ESG, or Environmental, Social, and Governance, is a concept that has become increasingly important in recent years as investors and other stakeholders seek to evaluate companies based on their performance in these areas. ESG criteria are used to assess a company’s impact on the environment, society, and governance practices, and can be applied to any type of organization, including public and private companies, non-profits, and government agencies.

Environmental criteria include factors such as a company’s energy use, greenhouse gas emissions, waste management, and natural resource conservation. As the world becomes increasingly aware of the impact of climate change and the need to transition to a more sustainable future, environmental factors have become a key focus of ESG analysis. Investors are looking for companies that are taking steps to reduce their environmental footprint and mitigate the risks associated with climate change.

Social criteria include factors such as labor practices, human rights, community engagement, and product safety. Companies that prioritize social issues are seen as being more responsible and better able to attract and retain customers, employees, and other stakeholders. In addition, companies that prioritize social issues are often better able to manage risks and avoid reputational damage.

Governance criteria include factors such as board composition, executive pay, and shareholder rights. Good governance is seen as a key factor in ensuring that companies are well-managed and able to deliver long-term value to their stakeholders. Companies with strong governance practices are often more transparent and accountable and are better positioned to identify and manage risks.

Cityray and ESG

Cityray not only focuses on the research and improvement of electronic human resource management systems, but also hopes to integrate environmental protection and sustainable development concepts into the operation of the company. Through the digital transformation of electronic technology, the development of human resource management in the company can be balanced with the environment. As the company expands, the operational costs of group-based human resource management naturally increase, and the complex document recording and storage not only wastepaper, but also require a lot of manpower and resources to process. Considering this, we launched the first generation of electronic human resource management system iHRPlus in 2000 to respond to rapid business expansion, achieve digital document management, greatly reduce printing, storage, and transportation costs, and reduce paper waste and consumption of forest resources from the source, helping companies carry out “paperless” office initiatives. In addition, our human resource system can realize functions such as remote work, video conferencing, and online training, thereby reducing employee commuting time and providing employers with more flexible options for scheduling work. Reducing physical commuting can lower the carbon emissions of transportation, further protecting the environment.
