Because the financial sector determines which companies and projects receive funding, it has a major influence on the sustainability of our economy. Pressure from both politics and society has translated into the development of a lot of recent ESG legislation. Because these regulations are constantly changing, it is difficult to keep up with current requirements. Our ESG e-learnings help you to stay up to date with the laws and regulations in this area and to implement them within your organisation.
In recent years, sustainability has risen higher and higher on the social agenda. Sustainability is a broad concept, covering not only the climate or the use of raw materials, but also, for example, working conditions and diversity within an organisation. The various aspects of sustainability are often collectively referred to as ‘ESG factors’.
ESG stands for Environmental, Social and Governance. The factor ‘Environmental’ includes for example climate change, the use of fossil fuels, air pollution and deforestation. Social includes child labor, humanitarian crises and modern-day slavery. Governance includes diversity within the board, corruption, and a responsible remuneration policy.
