Swedish power company Vattenfall, a government-owned utility, is facing an unprecedented environmental crisis that threatens its existence. It wanted to sell electricity from three of its hydroelectric power stations on the bed of the Dalälven river. It is a World Heritage Site.
The Swedish government and the United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) were now committed to protecting the site, and power generation there would make these organizations lose face.
The Swedish government was also under pressure from local politicians and environmental campaigners to reduce its stake in Vattenfall. They claimed that the company, among Europe’s largest generators of electricity from renewable energy, was producing more hydroelectric power than the country’s grids could use.
With the government on the verge of issuing an order on reducing its stake, Vattenfall is in the process of implementing its new business model of ESG that will allay all environmental concerns, while allowing it to continue to be in business.
ESG, in fact, is a major go-to way for most businesses today. Why did Vattenfall choose ESG? Let’s understand…
What is ESG and why is important?
The acronym ESG stands for Environmental Social and Corporate Governance. It is the shared responsibility of the three parties involved in the business — government, stockholders/investors, and companies. Not working within ESG policies has damaged the reputation of a number of multinational companies.
ESG practices have been shown to improve both financial performance and business resilience in the long term. The risks that arise from its non-compliance are significant, but so are the benefits in terms of improved reputation and enhanced resilience.
Additionally, the ESG framework is becoming increasingly popular among financial professionals as they seek to provide investors with differentiated products that also consider social values in addition to traditional monetary values.
