The acronym ESG comes from the English “Environmental, Social and Governance” and summarizes its three pillars. This acronym has become the reference for business and investment practices that focus on sustainable development, not having only profit as an objective.
THE SUSTAINABILITY CHALLENGE
Sustainability has recently taken an evolutionary leap and has become a central theme of public and private discourse.
Indeed, several governments are launching stimulus packages for the development of digitization and sustainability.
Furthermore, the option of investment funds to only invest in companies that have the best ESG in their sector is motivating managers to invest heavily in sustainability in the three axes of ESG – Environment, Social, and Governance.
