Sustainable and more responsible corporate practices are directly linked to business performance, value creation and, consequently, investments attraction. For this reason, environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues have played an increasingly important role in the decision-making process of companies and their market positioning.
All signs indicate that companies and corporations that embrace ESG values as an integral part of their daily lives, especially in a world marked by COVID-19, will be better positioned to prosper. ESG and sustainability issues attract better investments, transforming relationships with people.
In this scenario, there are many opportunities but also countless challenges and the nonobservance of social, environmental and corporate responsibility can generate legal consequences, financial loss and reputational damage, as well as confidence loss of consumers and other parties involved in the business.
The multidisciplinary team of Trench Rossi Watanabe’s Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Group, made up of specialists in all matters related to the theme, has supported and guided our clients to enable them to act in a positive and proactive way in the face of numerous changes and new national and global demands, considering the risks and opportunities in all aspects that make up the ESG policy.
