ESG risk factors comprises environmental, social and governance characteristics that could negatively impact the financial performance or solvency of an entity, sovereign or individual. An ESG risk assessment that defines the most relevant factors for a specific organisation to be aware of is an important part of ESG risk management. The ongoing standardisation of ESG terminology should make this task easier for everyone, it can be difficult to identify risks as 'environmental,' 'social,' or 'governance' and the potential impact of specific risks can be hard to quantify, but awareness of standardised terminology can prepare businesses for potential problems. 

ESG risks include those related to climate change impacts mitigation and adaptation, environmental management practices and duty of care, working and safety condition, respect for human rights, anti-bribery and corruption practices, and compliance to relevant laws and regulations.
