Sustainable Business Beyond ESG: Towards an Integrated Approach


With Kristina Touzenis, independent impact advisor and former lawyer at the IOM, and Amanda Feldman, Engagement Lead at UNDP’s global SDG Impact initiative.

Sustainable business: Where are we heading? We discussed with our experts why we need something concrete beyond measuring on one’s (ESG) impact.

Our global challenges are becoming increasingly complex, and all countries lack in progress when it comes to meeting their Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030. This is why we need to turn purpose into impact. Only if we create positive impact together, we can reach these goals.

But how can we actually move from traditional environmental, social, and governance rankings to integrated sustainability strategies that lead to responsible investment? Where do we stand in terms of regulations and which role will international standards for impact measuring and reporting play?
