Environmental, Social and Governance issues (ESG) bring risks and opportunities for companies, affecting their risk/return profile in credit, insurance and equity investments. SITAWI has developed expertise to monitor and model ESG business impacts to support decision making by institutional investors, banks and insurers.
We focus on companies and industries relevant to Brazil, since we believe it is essential to have a strong local presence and insight. Since 2015 we have been the Brazil research and sales partner of Vigeo Eiris, a leading global ESG research agency with over 300 clients worldwide, providing SITAWI a strong distribution channel and access to ESG expertise.
Our ESG Research products are used by domestic and foreign investors as well as business and civil society and are divided into 3 product areas.
We aim to identify the most relevant ESG issues for each sector, issues that impact competitive dynamics and perspectives of risk and return. Our research supports the development of ESG materiality and industry benchmarks while also providing context for our analysis of companies. Covered sectors include: financial, insurance, food, beverages, construction, energy, mining, pulp and paper, oil and gas, steel, telecom, retail, among others.
