Companies extensively raising financing and promoting their products on international financial and commodity markets are facing growing expectations of investors, counterparties, creditors and regulators on sustainability issues. Today companies are expected to develop a strategic ESG (environmental, social, governance) vision and implement projects in the area of environmental protection, climate change prevention, reduction of carbon footprint of products, uninterrupted operation, as well as compliance with the principles of corporate governance and human rights.
The impact of ESG factors on companies’ financial performance is becoming more apparent every year.
