Environmental, Social and Governance

For professional service firms, the management of environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks and opportunities (both in their own businesses and in the delivery of services to their clients) has become an increasingly important and material issue.

We offer a wide range of solutions to address and manage ESG issues. These solutions, which include consulting and advisory services, are tailored to individual needs and objectives. As the leading provider of risk and insurance-based offerings, we can also augment your ESG value proposition with our suite of ESG-related solutions.

ESG Maturity Diagnostic

Aon’s multi-faceted, proprietary ESG Maturity Diagnostic addresses potential exposure to ESG oversight, practices, policies and reporting. The tool can help clients review and assess the framework of their ESG maturity and how to convey the past, present and future of their ESG journey. It can allow stakeholders to better understand the firm’s ESG risks, including reputational, and how the firm is differentiated in the market.

Critically, the tool uses only externally sourced information without requiring a manual questionnaire. Such data is what financial stakeholders and ratings agencies typically use in their ESG assessments. The utilization of third-party data also removes the administrative burden on the company from having to input information and bolsters the credibility of the tool’s findings.

Aon can conduct a current-state assessment and build a tailored board and executive education session for a company.
