  • Sustainability and ESG Management at Companies: How to start, who to involve and what to prioritize

    In its 3rd edition, launched in 2022, the Guide "Sustainability and ESG Management at Companies: How to start, who to involve and what to prioritize" aims to share and disseminate knowledge, reflections and best practices on the subject, which can contribute to the trajectory of differentiation, continuity and value creation of large, medium and small companies. The preface is signed by Marcelo Seraphim, Head of Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) in Brazil.

    The new guide is an evolution of its 1st edition, launched in 2011, but preserves some of its essential topics, such as the timeline on the concept of corporate sustainability and updates with a dynamic view of the "14 steps towards sustainability" to be followed by companies that wish to incorporate these aspects into their internal management.

  • ISE – Sustainability in the Capital Market

    ISE has matured in its five-year existence (in 2010), encouraged by a broad collaborative process of participation, given that it is the member-companies that contribute to improve its organization. This book, written on the basis of reconstitution of the facts, examining documentation and interviews, registers the main challenges encountered and ISE’s conceptual commitment in the sense of contributing to the development of a new culture among Brazilian companies, based on practices benefiting sustainability.

  • The Value of ISE - Main Studies and Investor Perspective

    In 2010, when strategic goals were defined for the ISE over a five-year timeframe, the ISE’s Deliberative Board (CISE), B3 and Gvces committed themselves to work on raising the number of companies participating in this process, increasing the volume of invested funds and products linked to the index, and turning it into a benchmark for sustainable and responsible investments, among other commitments. These goals were defined based on a series of discussions with the key ISE stakeholders and, in order to reach such goals, B3 ordered this study to expand corporate participation and enhance investor engagement.

    This study has been prepared with the aim of bringing together the main research lines that seek to identify and convey the value of participating in initiatives like the ISE. This document is structured on three major fronts. On the first front, we conducted a survey to collect the main data on SRI trends in the two largest market niches: Europe and the United States, besides results from an MIT research study conducted among executives on the value of sustainability in the current market. Next, we carried out a non-exhaustive survey on academic studies that seek to identify the intangible and tangible gains achieved by companies through their participation in the ISE or related initiatives. Finally, we present the results of a survey done with major Brazilian pension funds aimed at investigating the knowledge of the ISE and how it could be used in their analysis and decision-making process.
