We understand sustainability as development which satisfies present needs without compromising the capacity of future generations, ensuring a balance between economic growth, care for the environment and social wellbeing.
Considering that the future of the planet and all its inhabitants depends directly on whether we can reduce threats such as the effects of climate change, scarcity of water and other resources, and overpopulation, do you not think that investing in the planet is the best option for the future?
This would mean advancing ethical and socially responsible investment, which incorporates environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria into the decision-making process alongside conventional financial criteria. Actions such as defending human rights, gender equality, structuring boards of directors, protecting biodiversity, using renewable energies, ensuring good employee relations, fiscal transparency, etc., all take on great weight when decisions are taken.
This type of responsible investment has been growing in recent years. One example is green bonds, a market instrument to finance projects that generate environmental benefits.
