Actions speak louder than words.

Sustainability is no longer an option, it is vital for corporate survival. Financial institutions are increasingly acting to apply ESG criteria to their assets. Investments that don’t meet their sustainability criteria or that don’t report on their CSR are being divested. These actions can greatly impact a company’s reputation and ultimately their bottom line. We believe the level of non-financial disclosure will increase exponentially in the future. The Comply or Explain rule that applies to Corporate Governance will be extended to every aspect of a company’s economic, social and environmental performance. Successfully navigating this minefield where each asset manager defines ESG criteria differently and each country has different rules and requirements will be essential to survival.

At the Green Place, we combined financial expertise and CSR experience to
assist clients in creating a clear and quantifiable non-financial picture.
