Aims and Scope of this International Workshop on ESG Values

ESG values have evolved in recent years. Initially they were seen as an accessory, later as a differentiating element and today they are a necessary, though not sufficient, condition to compete in a compromised global market.

From the search for shareholder benefit, we have evolved to satisfy the needs of other stakeholders, which ultimately seems to be correlated with the value of the organisation and leads to a virtuous circle.

Stakeholders and Organisations

Is this correlation unidirectional?


Commitment and Value

Are the organisations that are most committed to their stakeholders the ones that the market assigns greater value?


Better positioned companies

Are those that are better positioned, more highly valued, with healthy accounts, the ones that can afford to “look after” their stakeholders?


Commitment with ESG Criteria

How socially, environmentally and governmentally committed are companies with high ESG scores?

covering the following areas of knowledge

ESG issues in organisations from a holistic perspective

How can we assess it? What types of indicators exist? How are they built? Are available indicators good proxies for good governance? What are the relationships between good governance and organisational performance?

To what extent can organisations contribute to a decarbonised world? Can they have a positive impact on global warming? What financial products are considered sustainable? Are sustainable financial products more profitable? Do they provide greater investor diversification? Do they reduce risk? The social impact of the company: What policies favour the development of human capital in organisations? Are good practices regarding social policies linked to the performance and/or valuation of companies?

What is the purpose of SRI? Is decarbonisation of the planet and economic growth possible? Can SRI contribute to greater financial stability? How do ESG policies and values translate into financial institutions? Is impact investing a truly sustainable option?

Non-financial reporting, disclosure obligations, new EU taxonomy, regulation linked to the circular economy.
