ESG evaluation: How can we contribute to achieving the SDGs?

ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) has been a hot topic for private and public credit insurers. Still, in the end, it is “just” a rating system derived from Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) reporting, and in practice, it is difficult to assess what changes it has brought. Shouldn’t credit insurers shift their focus towards improving their contribution to the United Nations Economic Development Growth (SDGs)? How can they contribute, and how can digitalization help them increase their impact?

In their market analysis, authors Thomas Frossard and Marc Meyer delve into the crucial question of how ESG evaluation can contribute to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). As environmental, social, and governance considerations gain prominence in decision-making processes, companies are recognizing the need to align their practices with the SDGs. Frossard and Meyer explore the role of ESG evaluation as a robust framework for assessing performance and progress towards these goals. They highlight the significance of understanding ESG evaluation methodologies and showcase industry best practices, ultimately providing insights on how organizations can effectively contribute to creating a more sustainable and inclusive future.
