This and other questions are the focus of the first edition of the Sustainable CVM Series

CVM Sustainable Series Cover: Voume 1The Securities and Exchange Commission (CVM) launches today, 9/10, the Sustainable CVM Series. In this first volume, the Municipality presents content focused on the inclusion of ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) issues with respect to the citizen’s investment decision making. This is yet another CVM educational action within the scope of the World Investor Week (WIW 2020).

What are Sustainable Finance?

The content informs that “Usually, the term sustainable finance is used to refer to the integration of environmental, social and governance aspects in the investment decision-making processes by financial market actors”. “Unlike the term sustainability, which usually focuses on environmental aspects, including climate change, the term sustainable finance is broader”, explains the document.

How to identify ESG investments?

The material indicates that “Although there are several initiatives that encourage the creation of an ESG taxonomy (classification), there is still no official taxonomy for these types of investments, as this is a relatively new debate in the financial system and in the capital market”.

More broadly, “ESG investments are considered to be those that finance any sector, company or project that focuses on (A) environmental, (S) ocial or (G) overnance issues, such as: sustainable use of natural resources, carbon emission, energy efficiency , clean technology, inclusion policy and racial and gender diversity, human rights, transparency, ethics, policies and labor relations, data protection, independence from the board of companies, diversity in the composition of the Board of Directors, compliance with the SDGs, among others others”, informs the first volume of the Sustainable CVM Series.
