Using Vectoring to Fast-Forward Your ESG Activities

European temperatures in the past summer months were not as exceptional as some might think. According to the UN weather agency, CO2 levels are at their highest in the last 650,000 years, and so are the average temperatures, with the world’s nine warmest years all having occurred since 2005, and the five warmest since 2010. With the battle for sustainability heating up, companies and executives need to develop a new sense of urgency, moving it from the realm of compliance to that of a key driver of performance and innovation, which requires embedding it deeply into their core strategies.

Driving ESG Performance

Access to Capital is Driving ESG Performance

Increasingly sustainability frontrunners are leveraging their position as leaders by making deals with their banks. Philips, Barry Callebaut, and Generali are recent examples of companies that have successfully engaged with their capital providers to develop facilities with innovative sustainable and green features. By linking interest costs to ESG performance such as targets on green investments or progress made on sustainability initiatives, a strong business case for sustainability is created. Analyzing the different ESG benchmarks is a useful first step to further understanding ESG performance, as well as monitoring progress, and guiding decision-making to further accelerate sustainability performance.
