Sustainability has become a central issue for our society. No company will be able to avoid the consequences of climate change and the responsibility for the societal impact of their own conduct and business activities. The associated transformative developments present major challenges to companies, banks and investors, but they also offer opportunities. Already today, ESG aspects are having powerful impacts on business and investment decisions as well as on the access to capital. At the same time, they are driving innovation and creating new areas of business.
Currently, one of the central elements of ESG is the effort to define indicators and technical standards (taxonomy). Among other impacts, these standards will play an increasingly important role in risk analysis, the rating of companies and financial instruments according to ESG criteria, investment and financing decisions, how companies position themselves as well as on company acquisitions and sales.
