Environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations are integral parts of sustainable economic development and play an increasingly important role in financing transactions. For example, investing in brownfield sites with the aim of reducing environmental impacts.
More and more, the investment and lending community, including financial institutions such as banks, are considering ESG factors when making investment decisions. The aim is to support economic growth while reducing pressures on the environment and taking social and governance aspects into account.
