ESG Inefficiency of Capital Markets in Emerging Economies Project 2008
SinCo was invited to prepare written thought pieces and design programing for workshops hosted by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) and United Nations Environment Program Finance Initiative (UNEP FI) in investment hubs in developed and emerging markets, bringing together institutional investors via UNEP FI and investee companies via WBCSD. The aim was to develop a common view on sustainability value, to understand current gaps in communicating ESG information, and to improve the integration of ESG factors into company valuation, bringing together investor and investee representatives from all financial centers of the region.
