Brief Description:

With the Sustainable Finance Action Plan, the European Union intends to promote more sustainable economic growth, ensure a stable and inclusive financial system, and strengthen transparency and sustainability in the financial and real economy.

The first regulations in this direction have been introduced by the EU as well as at the national level, and they are further strengthening the already increasing relevance of ESG aspects in investment activities. For this reason, a large number of investors are now integrating ESG criteria into their investment and risk processes and are transparently facing up to the new transformation task of the financial market with professional ESG management.

Get an insight into ESG practice and its requirements for professional ESG management in the webinar with the ESG experts from TAUW and the IT experts from WeSustain. The focus will lie on a short overview of the current ESG practice and the exchange around current challenges in the financial market, especially with regard to the implementation of current regulatory requirements of the SFDR and the EU Taxonomy. In addition, you will gain insights on how to address these challenges through digital and standardized implementation with software solutions.

Bring your individual questions and experiences around ESG practice. At the end of the webinar, TAUW and WeSustain will be available to answer your questions.

  • Why is ESG or ESG criteria currently high on the agenda of many financial players?

In the exclusive ranking “the 200 most sustainable companies in Germany 2021” of the stern editing team and the market research company Statista, five WeSustain software customers – including Allianz, Merck and Talanx – are among the top 10 most sustainable companies in Germany 2021.

The insurance company Allianz has been rated as Germany’s most sustainable company 2021 in the latest ranking by the stern editing team and the market research company Statista. In addition to the ranking leader Allianz, another four companies and software customers of WeSustain – among others the pharmaceutical company Merck and the insurance company Talanx based in Hannover – have secured a place in the top 10 of the ranking. All five companies and WeSustain customers use the Enterprise Sustainability Management (ESM) software for their sustainability management, which was analyzed and evaluated in the ranking along 30 key indicators in the three categories environment, social and economy. In addition, an online panel of 13,000 citizens was used to assess their perception of sustainability in relation to the companies.

“Our customers rely on WeSustain as a software partner to further professionalize their sustainability management because with us they build collaborative and digital processes to efficiently manage and implement their sustainability projects. They are therefore laying the foundation for a transparent communication and an effective sustainability performance. We are very excited that five of our customers received recognition for their efforts in the top 10 of the ranking by the stern editing team and Statista,” highlights Dr. Manfred Heil, Managing Director at WeSustain.

The magazine stern and the market research company Statista compared the sustainability performance of a total of 2,000 companies based in Germany for the ranking. The precondition for the ranking was that the company has at least 500 employees, is one of the companies with the highest revenues in Germany or is listed in an index of the Dax family. The weapons industry was excluded from the ranking, as were companies with greenhouse gas emissions of over ten million tons. A total of 200 companies qualified for the ranking.
