Dengyo Environmental, Social, and Governance Principles

Dengyo Sustainability

As the signs of global warming become more pronounced, sustainability has emerged as an ever-more critical goal worldwide. The international business community has responded in terms of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) principles. 

In 2006, the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) report first discussed ESG standards and principles, requiring that companies incorporate ESG standards in financial evaluations. In the 2010s and 2020s, ESG became a much more proactive area. 

Sixty-three investment companies with $6.5 trillion in assets under management signed on early. As of March 2022, 4800 signatories from over 80 countries with assets of about US $100 trillion had signed up to the PRI. 

ESG factors are an effort to guide businesses toward and measure responsible practices. But ESG is also good business. Upcoming generations – Millennials and Gen Z – are much more socially conscious than their predecessors, basing buying and investment decisions on ESG factors. But what does ESG mean in practice, and how is Dengyo incorporating ESG in its business philosophy and operations?

ESG Definitions


The “E” in ESG is the environmental component. It refers to how an organization handles environmental impacts and risk management. It includes the level of greenhouse gas emissions a company’s activities generate, how it manages natural resources, and how prepared it is for issues associated with climate change, such as severe weather, fires, and flooding. 


The “S” in ESG is the social component. This element includes how an organization manages human capital, stakeholder relationships, and community impact.


Governance is the “G” in ESG. It refers to the leadership and management of an organization. Good governance aligns leadership’s initiatives with stakeholder expectations and promotes transparency and accountability in business and social matters.
