Group Waste Italia and ALTIS, Promoters of Change
Kinexia and ALTIS (Alta Scuola Impresa e Società / High School Business and Society – Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore - Milano) have launched a promoter project to extend the assessment about companies to ESG issues for financial institutions. Promote sustainability performance among the criteria for value judgment of financial operators More and more operators develop financial products and services that integrate environmental, social and governance (ESG) among the criteria used in the evaluation of companies, feeding the field of ethics and responsible business.
Traditional Financial Operators, however, do not seem to pay enough attention to the ESG in the processes of evaluation of companies, both for the provision of credit and for the investment. That’s why sustainable companies wish that their commitment is a recognition by the financial institutions. A company committed to sustainability is more forward-looking than other companies, is subject to lower risks of producing environmental disasters or suffer claims a social character.
Promote sustainability performance among the criteria for value judgment of financial operators More and more operators develop financial products and services that integrate ESG (environmental, social and governance) among the criteria used in the evaluation of companies, fueling the sector of ethical finance and responsible. Financial operators, at present, does not seem to pay sufficient attention to the ESG aspects in the assessment processes of the companies, both as regards the dispensing of a possible credit for both a possible investment in the same. Why companies engaged around issues of sustainability wish that their involvement are a recognition by the financial institutions.
A company attentive to the ESG is more forward-looking than other businesses; It is subject to lower risks to cause environmental harm; He believes in the value of their reputation on a social level. The inclusion of ESG criteria in the evaluation systems of financial operators is therefore a necessary step toward overcoming a system based only on economic performance. The project fosters collaboration between some listed companies in order to identify indicators that represent reliable measurements for evaluating a company's ESG performance.
The project aims to encourage collaboration between some listed companies to identify the ESG indicators of a company. The indicators will be presented to financial operators to include them in their own evaluation systems, taking a step towards the assessment of economic, social and environmental impact of a company at the time of expression of an opinion. The result of the work of the companies will be the presenting of a synthetic mode of assessing the sustainability of a company.
