ESG: a must have to improve access to capital and avoid activist situations

Environmental, social and governance principles (ESG) are a set of standards by which a company and its investors can measure the wider impact of its operations and long-term strategy.

Investors increasingly expect companies to recognise and address, in a responsible way, the short and long-term risks and opportunities in relation to ESG factors that impact long-term value creation. In parallel, Asset Managers have begun changing their investment criteria, incorporating environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into investment decision-making, and by supporting the allocation of capital to sustainable initiatives.
