WeSustain publishes new whitepaper:
“Digitisation as the key to professional ESG management“

The whitepaper “Digitisation as key to professional ESG management” gives an insight into the broad sustainability approach for responsible investing in alternative investments. How digital processes promote responsible investment according to ESG criteria.

An English acronym composed of three little letters that summarises a broad sustainability concept for responsible investing: ESG. The so-called ESG criteria are increasingly used by a wide variety of players in the financial market, whether investors or asset managers. At the same time, the approaches for ESG management vary according to each asset class (liquid or illiquid assets). The ethical, social and ecological criteria are intended to ensure that a sustainable financial system is promoted that steers capital into a sustainable real economy. Due to increasing regulations and stakeholder requirements, “sustainable finance” is becoming a new imperative for the financial sector and is presenting financial players with new challenges.

In WeSustain’s whitepaper „Digitisation as key to professional ESG management, you will learn what exactly is hidden behind the acronym “ESG”, which trends and developments can be observed on the financial market and how investors and asset managers can implement their ESG strategies efficiently with a professional and above all digitally supported ESG management.

    In an interview with Stefan Kempf, Member of the Management Board of SGS-TÜV Saar GmbH, and Manfred Heil, Managing Director at WeSustain, we talk about the growing management challenge of “compliance” and how the interplay of software and consulting scores points at companies.

    (…) In your experience, Mr. Kempf, what are the central challenges and opportunities for industrial companies within the framework of operator responsibility?

    One of the central challenges in connection with legally compliant operation is certainly the complete recording, mapping and permanent fulfilment of operator obligations. This requires a comprehensive technical expertise, a suitable structure to present the plants and processes as well as a meaningful allocation of responsibilities for the implementation of the defined measures. This requires a high degree of self-discipline on the part of all persons involved. However, consistent implementation of operator responsibility offers corresponding advantages, such as the fact that business and liability risks for the persons responsible are minimized or planning security is ensured by timely budgeting of the measures. Optimized structures enable lean processes and efficient workflows, which in turn have a direct positive effect on costs and provide a competitive advantage.

    Mr. Heil, which of the challenges mentioned by Mr. Kempf does WeSustain solve with the new “Enterprise Compliance Management” software?

    As Mr Kempf has already mentioned, the complexity and scope of operator responsibility has exploded in recent years. It is foreseeable that this development will continue, so that compliance management that cannot cope with the increased requirements can become a risk factor in its own right. In this respect, software support is not only economically sensible, but also indispensable from the point of view of liability and risk. The biggest advantage of the “Enterprise Compliance Management” software from WeSustain (short: ECM) lies in the continuous integration of content, processes and data. (…).
