ESG data & regulatory trends

ESG Daten & regulatorische Trends

ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) is a significant influencing factor in the financial world. This approach takes environmental, social and governance aspects into account. Investors use ESG criteria to better assess the financial performance of companies. Environmental aspects include environmental impact and resource utilisation. Social factors include employee satisfaction and social responsibility. Governance aspects relate to corporate management and ethical principles. Companies that score favourably in these areas can be more stable and less prone to risk in the long term, which can have a positive impact on financial performance. Investors integrate ESG factors into their valuation models and decision-making processes as they have a measurable impact on financial performance and the long-term value of investments.
