Today, financial managers, investors and stakeholders are concerned not only in generating financial returns, but also on the
ethical and societal impact their investments determine. Collective action within the banking and finance sectors is now focused on a better future. Prudential decision-making now strongly considers ESG factors.
Mitigating ESG risks is less costly in financial and non–financial terms and can materialise in many ways. This can be from unsustainable water and energy consumption activities, high carbon emitting activities and activities where human labour is exploited. Portfolio management from an ESG perspective allows the opportunity to
screen and categorise investments based on the ESG contributions. This allows both investors and portfolio managers to deliberately choose the investments in which funds are directed which is impactful and can generate longer-term financial returns for your company.
At Green Reply, we also believe that ESG risks should be considered alongside the traditional financial factors. Mitigating ESG risks today will have a positive impact on your longer-term financial return. Contrarily, the
transitional and the reputational risks that come with not adapting will be more costly for your business over time.
Red flags are already being raised within the financial sector for assets that are unsustainable or have no strategy to be sustainably retrofitted. There is increasing pressure to divest from these assets and an increasing loss of interest for investment in some of these assets. There is the real risk of
unsustainable assets becoming stranded assets in the future.
