Digesting Davos: Actionable Insights

The 2018 World Economic Forum (WEF) has once again shown promising sustainability developments, with multinationals, governmental representatives and academics emphasizing rapid change is needed to meet the requirements from the Paris Agreement.

ESG Performance and Investors

Getting Your Facts Straight to Gain Investor Trust

The launch of the Antimicrobial Resistance Benchmark at this year's WEF in Davos, the introduction of a sugar tax to fight obesity, and the recent New York City lawsuit against five major oil companies for their contribution to climate change.

Today investors seek companies that demonstrate effective management of their most relevant ESG factors and focus on their issues that have a real impact. The time for storytelling is over. It is now high time to have the data on issues in place in order to mitigate your business risks and to start seizing market opportunities.
Paying for Climate Change

New York City is suing five major oil companies for their contribution to climate change.

So it is increasingly important for companies to perform impact valuations in order to gain insights on their negative and positive externalities, and learn how to mitigate risks and leverage opportunities.
