Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG)

The impacts of climate change have ignited global attention, with environmental, social, and governance (ESG) initiatives becoming a key driver for improving the ways companies do business. Environmental practices, in particular, focus on building a circular economy (such as by reducing, reusing, and recycling packaging waste), reducing carbon footprint, and complying with environmental initiatives designed to eliminate the use of slave labor or the support of conflicted areas like the DRC.

Other benefits and areas of focus when establishing ESG initiatives include:

Compliance with ESG initiatives opens the door to continued and future business with ESG-conscious customers. At Dedicated Computing, our ESG practices are designed to increase innovation while promoting sustainable success. We also educate and align our supply chains to make similar ESG choices, which has a domino effect on reducing waste and the impact of climate change.

What is ESG


ESG refers to specific standards that outline a company’s behaviors regarding its commitment to transparent, socially conscious, and sustainable business practices. ESG stands for environmental, social, and governance.

Beginning in the 1960s, this stakeholder-centric approach to conducting business has evolved to address growing changes in modern business practices. ESG as we know it today is based on the principle that environmental stewardship is only one of several factors demonstrating a company’s commitment to sustainability and ethics. As food insecurity, droughts, and rising temperatures persist, there are also new concerns due to mass migrations, increased regulations, and technological advances threatening data privacy and security.

These ongoing and emerging risks have only been exacerbated by COVID-19 pandemic-induced economic pressures, which have increased some industries’ exposure to ESG risks. This means companies also face greater scrutiny if they don’t effectively manage ESG factors.





Common challenges and obstacles in implementing ESG practices include:

  • Data Quality & Availability
  • Defining Clear & Consistent Criteria
  • Integration With Business Strategy
  • Limited Resources
  • Regulatory Uncertainty
  • Short-Termism
  • Supply Chain Complexities

In many cases, corporate issuers are finding that while certain ESG metrics may matter to one company, they may be unimportant to another. Boards are increasingly referring to organizations such as EcoVadis for ESG Sustainability ratings tailored to their specific industry and business size.

To overcome these challenges, Dedicated Computing implements strategies for managing resistance and fostering buy-in. We also leverage partnerships and collaborations to further our ESG goals. Continuous improvement and adaptation to evolving ESG trends are crucial for organizations’ environmental sustainability, social responsibility, and fair governance.
