To address SDG 3 target 3.4 (By 2030, reduce by one third premature mortality form non-communicable diseases through prevention and treatment and promote mental health and well-being), strengthening the delivery of mental healthcare to the most vulnerable populations is critical. This paper explores the experiences of staff working in the National Health Service (NHS) offender health teams to identify sources of adversity that frontline staff encounter when providing healthcare in prison settings. The results highlight sources of adversity that need to be addressed in order to ensure the wellbeing of mental healthcare providers and enable high quality delivery of healthcare to vulnerable populations.
Heightened emphasis on transparency and accountability through corporate governance and disclosure has renewed the focus on the ‘triple bottom line’—environmental, social and economic impacts. Environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) reporting generally measures the sustainability and ethical performance of a company. There is increasing interest in the ESG performance of companies by various stakeholders. A range of mechanisms exist to shape CSR and foment voluntary reporting by companies on their ESG performance. Adhering to one such framework heightens credibility, and a proactive approach to sustainability presents opportunities while ensuring a company’s preparedness to embrace evolving legal requirements.
