A specialist sustainability advisory firm helping business leaders integrate environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into strategy, processes and communications to create shareholder value and contribute toward the achievement of the UN SDGs.
There are 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with number 17 being “Partnerships for the goals”. Etoile Advisory was set up to build partnerships to integrate sustainability in capital markets. The emblem for the company is a 16-point star, each point representing one of the other 16 goals.
Asset owners want to invest consistent with their norms and values. Asset managers need to be able to report to the underlying investor about how their capital is being deployed. If companies do not report on their progress and targets to achieve sustainability eventually they will see their cost of capital go up or be starved of funding altogether. Conversely those companies that understand the SDGs, set priorities for those that are material for their operations and report on their progress will experience superior risk management, higher valuations and greater commercial opportunities, in our view.
If you are serious about incorporating environment, social and governance (ESG) best practice in your business to enhance your long-term value please call Etoile Advisory to find out how we can help.
