A note from our publisher
Welcome to The Point ESG News Site. We show you the news through a different lens. Our reporting is dedicated to assessing what’s happening in your world in terms of environmental justice, social justice and good governance.
The website is driven by a commitment to the importance of truth in the public interest and the need for greater levels of social and environmental justice and higher levels of accountability and leadership (good governance).
We hope The Point ESG News Site empowers individuals and communities to aspire to higher levels of accountability, equity and human decency.
Here at The Point, we write about the issues that matter most – community, humanity and the planet.
Our laws are weak, their regulation is, at times, non-existent. As usual, the broader community does not know what it does not know – until it is too late. We’ve been brain washed by conservative corporate media into believing we are powerless. In turn, we therefore decide that what ever we do won’t change things. We find ourselves saying “What’s the point?” or tell ourselves “there is no point”.
Hopefully, this website can demonstrate that there is a point to being well-informed so you can stand up and speak your mind when change is required.
We focus on providing news with a conscience. Many of our stories are about local issues and events happening on the NSW Central Coast but we also have an eye on issues of importance at a regional, state, national and global level.
Thanks for reading. Please subscribe to our weekly newsletter and tell us what stories you’d like covered here.
