Environmental social corporate governance ?!?! WTHF
« on: October 14, 2021, 09:53:13 PM »

I was in a board meeting (small mutual financial institution) and our external auditor was presenting another exciting annual auditors report, no significant findings, excellent capitol and liquidity, good loan quality ie low risk, good investment portfolio.
Then, she said there was something we should be aware of coming our way. The ESCG score or in other words, the federal examiners are starting to ask every corporate entity just what specifically they are doing about climate change!
Uh, just how much can a small mutual savings and loan with 5 branch offices and less than 50 employees do to reduce carbon emissions or greenhouse gasses?
Her advice? Tell them we are looking into it.
Oh for crying out loud…
What we have here is failure to communicate.

Tell them you're buying up dry ice and letting it evaporate to cool things off and save the atmosphere.

Tell them you are thinking of adding a wood fireplace to help heat the building and provide a warm look to the place.

We're converting all of our heating systems to coal!

Wait, that's not the answer you were looking for?

Just tell them it's organic

Well we have converted all lighting to led.
We could probably boost our score with more woke policies.

Divested all of our coal stocks and reinvested in compressed organic biomass futures. Artisinally extracted only of course.

I'm so contrarian that I didn't respond to the thread.
