The need to incorporate environmental and climate variables in investment decisions, as well as social and human rights variables in the design and/or execution of projects, is key to ensure the success of a company’s performance.
Given the above, ESG factors are essential for the current development and sustainability of all industries. The evolution of the concept of sustainable investment has been growing to the point that, nowadays, it is increasingly important for investors and other stakeholders of any company to comply with a series of sustainability parameters when having a relationship with a company. These are the so-called ESG criteria, which define these parameters.
ESG factors include the following aspects:
1. Environmental factor (Environmental), to make decisions based on how company activities affect the environment.
2. Social factor (Social), to take into account the impact of the company’s activities on the community, for example, in terms of diversity, human rights or labor rights.
3. Governance and corporate governance factor, related to the way in which companies are self-managed and governed in order to achieve their objectives.
