“Perfection should never become the enemy of better. Regulation must aim at empowering the business community to transform itself by embedding sustainability into its business model. It should acknowledge the challenges of this transformation without setting forth unpractical limitations that could end up harming the very rightsholders it aims to protect.”Giulia BiselliBST Partner
“When we talk about social factors measuring sustainability can be extremely difficult, because the indicators are often too diverse and fragmented. A holistic approach to measuring impact, capable of recognizing the interconnection between the E and S effects and of creating short, medium, and long-term impact goals is needed to fully capture a company’s ESG performance.”Silvia ScoziaBST Partner
“Smart leaders have taken philanthropy to another level by focusing on ESG issues their stakeholders care about, in many cases outperforming their peers financially. Why? ESG treats CSR and philanthropy not just as a donation, but as a foundation for a new line of sustainable business; it can strategically position a company to mitigate business and reputational risks, and it facilitates productive communications with shareholders, employees, regulators, the government, and media.”Jon KinnellPhilanthropy Development
