Fifty Shades of Green – Green investments : a complex dilemma
The seventeenth edition of our Sustainability Focus.
“Green” products may not always be green as their entire environmental footprint remains quite difficult to assess.
Social issues such as the respect of human rights, promotion of labour relations, responsible management of supply chain remain relevant for all companies including those operating in the “green” industry. Universal standards that define social responsibility and ESG factors are complementary and interdependent.
A “Green Bond” needs to consider the environmental and social challenges of a specific project and a transparent and regular reporting on ESG integration within the bond framework.
