What are your thoughts on the questionnaires given by clients or partners that have ESG programs?

I've filled out a few of those questionnaires for clients that have ESG programs, and some of them are fine. I'm more than happy to talk about what we do as a company for social impact as well as diversity and inclusion. But the environmental piece becomes complicated as we're a professional services firm that has one office and 350 remote employees with laptops. Everything we do is cloud based. For some of those questionnaires, you can end up scoring low on the environmental side and there isn’t anything your organization could have done to score higher. Some of them do miss the forest for the trees when they should take a more holistic view. It's interesting because the supplier piece of that is definitely in play. As more companies make sustainability a priority, along with ESG and supply chain, we’ll see a bit of a storm brewing.
