Telenet's Stakeholder-Driven Solution for Internet in Covid Times

As the world faced the global pandemic, our working and learning models were transformed, turning ourselves toward the telecommunication industry to ask for new digital solutions and reliable internet connections. At the same time, the digital gap became more apparent, leaving those who can’t afford internet access in a vulnerable position. Building on its adaptability and resilience during the early months of the Covid crisis, Telenet further strengthened its commitment to society and offered a new service to bridge the digital divide.

European Real Estate’s Underleveraged ESG Opportunities

As sustainability-labelled financing is expected to surge in 2021, companies are gearing up to get their fair share of it. Real estate, an industry that is typically capital-intensive, has a particularly great opportunity to tap into this source of financing. European real estate companies, however, appear to be lagging behind on ESG performance compared to their global peers, and may risk losing out.

New Perspectives on Materiality

Today’s world is obviously dominated by the COVID-19 pandemic, but if we look at the landscape of materiality, new perspectives are arising as well. The EU Commission talks about the concept of “Double Materiality” in its Non-Financial Reporting Directive and companies are concerned with capturing emerging risks successfully in their ESG approach. One of the main questions that therefore arises is: how do you ensure your materiality assessment covers these new perspectives on materiality?

Be Good & Tell It: The Status Quo of ESG Equity Stories

As investors increasingly integrate environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria in their decision making processes, companies need to cater to this information need. Developing and transmitting a clear ESG Equity Story is key in this: communicating about the firm’s ESG approach and performance in a coherent and transparent manner toward investor audiences. Finch & Beak has assembled a pilot benchmark as a probe for the current status quo, assessing 21 companies’ sustainability programs (‘Be Good’) and their ESG Equity Stories (‘Tell It’). A striking finding is that companies appear to engage in ESG ‘greywashing’ (antonym of greenwashing), by underleveraging their ESG performance in the communication towards investor audiences.

Carlsberg: Partnering for Progress

As epitomized by Sustainable Development Goal 17, Partnerships for the Goals, today’s major sustainability challenges require tailored and collaborative solutions. This means that partnering is to become a part of the company DNA.
