SANTA CLARA, Calif.—Santa Clara University’s Markkula Center for Applied Ethics today announced the availability of the ESG Resource Center, a new web-based offering dedicated to environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors. Companies are under extreme pressure from customers, investors, and the government to begin accounting for how they are performing in these non-financial matters, and this new set of resources will help them more efficiently operationalize ESG reporting.
The ESG Resource Center provides companies free access to an extensive library of insights and tools. In addition, the Ethics Center consults with large and small organizations to help with their ESG-related needs. This coaching can take place through training sessions in person or online, the creation of case studies, and more individualized approaches to different situations.
“No one is more qualified to offer this expertise than an ethics center at a Jesuit university in the Silicon Valley whose vision for more than 170 years has been to educate citizens and leaders to build a more humane, just, and sustainable world,” said Don Heider, executive director, Markkula Center for Applied Ethics at Santa Clara University.
