ESG: sustainability for managers


The ESG concept, which refers to Economic and Governance, Environmental and Social factors, currently has a prominent place on the agenda of investors, regulators and consumers.

It can represent both risks and opportunities that will affect a company's ability to create long-term value.

It covers environmental issues, such as climate change and the scarcity of natural resources, social issues, such as labor practices, diversity, product safety and data security, among other topics, and involves issues of governance, ethics, executive compensation and tax transparency, among others.

Not all topics will be relevant or material for all companies. For example, a service entity might focus more on human capital issues, while a food and beverage company might focus on environmental issues, such as waste management.

In view of the growing demands of the market (shareholders, banks, suppliers and competitors, among others), managers need to be prepared to understand these challenges and opportunities, integrating environmental, social and governance issues into the agenda of their management activities, in particular in the definition of the strategy and in the positioning before the stakeholders.

This training aims to enable managers to have a comprehensive understanding of this topic and its practical implications, contributing to a more effective management prepared for current challenges.
