Define SDG 2030 Contribution Strategy

  • Investors and Boards of Directors are aware that fiduciary responsibility is increasingly expected to take into account the global challenges of business resilience facing environmental disruptions, as well as societal demand for more inclusive business models. These issues range from protecting the environment, or accelerating decarbonization of value chains to respecting human rights and generating good and decent jobs in context of profound digital transformations. In addition to these pressures, companies must navigate the complexities of a late-cycle financial environment – including increased volatility – which can create incentives to maximize short-term returns at the expense of long-term growth.

Build Resilient and Inclusive Businesses and Operations

  • The global landscape is increasingly fragile and, as a result, susceptible to short-term behavior by corporations and governments alike. For instance, the more we know about climate change impacts, the more we understand this is changing deeper, faster and with greater interelated complexity. Around the world, frustration with years of stagnant wages, the effect of technology on jobs, and uncertainty about the future are also exponentially exacerbating global inequalities
  • In this context, protecting assets is clearly calling for engagement and dialogue with critical stakeholders – way beyond shareholders. Fiduciary and Business Responsibility today is basically expected to anchor digital, climate and social dimensions at the core of every strategic and operational decision – supported by concrete action plans documenting showing what’s expected and what’s implemented

Engage Stakeholders

  • Truth is we are in the middle of massive global disruptions coming with the combination of acceleration of climate and other environmental impacts, digital transformations increasing inequalities, and growing level of people education making stakeholders more demanding and challenging
  • In this context, investors and businesses need to respond to complex, contradictory yet inflating inquiries from stakeholders. Investors and businesses cannot solely rely on guidance provided by law: Globalized operations, combined with blurring frontiers between soft law and hard law are making rule of law dificult to apprehend. Think about the growing number of human right related initiatives asking investors and businesses to conduct related due diligence with assets, joint venture partners, sensitive markets, complex supply chains or products and define risk mitigation plans in response? This is not easy task. Consequences of poor understanding of what’s at stake from a human right perspective can have major criminal responsibilities and may force operations to close or decrease asset valuation significantly
