Promoting responsible and sustainable investment
Managing climate risk, the transition towards sustainable energy and incorporating Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) factors into financial decisions are of increasing importance to a growing number of investors. The benefit of using ESG criteria to determine the security and value of investments is now widely acknowledged. Though ESG integration procedures vary, they all form part of a broader approach towards risk management and sustainable value creation.
Access research adapted to all investment approaches
To identify risks related to ESG, to detect opportunities for future value creation and to be informed swiftly about controversies and litigations, all require research and data that is reliable, up to date, accessible, and customizable. V.E provides research and services adapted to many types of investment.
Detecting ESG risks, identifying opportunities for future value creation and being swiftly alerted to controversies and litigation require data and research that is up-to-date, reliable, customisable and user-friendly. V.E provides research and services suitable for all investment approaches.
The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Global Compact (GC) provide internationally recognised blueprints for achieving a more sustainable future. Our normative screening solutions provide investors with the necessary data to align their investments with these standards, develop robust thematic funds and indices. Partner with Moody’s ESG Solutions and champion progress towards a more sustainable and resilient future for all.
In 2015 UN member states adopted sustainable development goals, to renew and extend the scope of action of economic and financial players. We provide an opportunity for investors to guide their resource allocation to sustainable activities and services, and contribute to sustainable growth.
By incorporating the Principles of the Global Compact into their strategies, policies and procedures, companies commit to assess, define, implement, measure and communicate their sustainability strategy. The UNGC framework is also a strong tool for investors to meet their fiduciary duty by integrating ESG factors into their investment decisions.
