ESG falls on the test and on your payslip

In recent months, the term “ESG” has gained even more coverage in newspapers, portals, magazines and social networks.

If you haven't read anything about it yet, welcome to your first contact with this acronym.

And I invite you to relax, because the term ESG will accompany you for the rest of your life.

It was like this with the importance of studying English, then recognizing the existence of the environment, joining voluntary work, among other customs. And, thus, all these elements have become perennial practices in our Brazilian daily life.

The same is happening with ESG.

Colleges are already opening undergraduate and graduate courses to those who want to speak this new language. Companies are already promoting themed events.

This term will fall on the test of students and candidates for selection processes. And, whoever comes across him in the test, will be able to reap good results in the future payslip. After all, few still master the origin and scope of ESG and know how to include it in public or private services, provided by individuals or legal entities.

The time has come to reward that team that works in an organized manner, with good financial health, transparent to its partners, that recognizes Brazilian legislation, obeys it and is able to pass any audit.

This award translates into excellent rates obtained in ESG reports and can mean financial loans at lower rates.

It is to achieve this profile that third sector organizations, public entities or companies can be guided and led to best practices. Here is the justification for the increase in the number of training schools that will repeat old lessons, but with a new perspective from the UN. It is the retrofit in organizations that have become obsolete, to a greater or lesser degree, in complying with environmental and social legislation and in governance practices.

If you also want a big impact on your service delivery, whether small or large, enhance your ESG journey.

Take advantage of the fact that citizens from Switzerland, the USA and here in Brazil are committed to this professional improvement and, thus, we can do this homework together.

Studying together and doing the test in pairs can be an option to breathe more calmly, fluidly, and, in this case, with much less carbon.
