Who cares wins,2004–08 (Inglês)

This brief is to support the growth of sustainable capital flows, IFC advisory services seek to influence, support, and enable capital market stakeholders to better integrate environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors into capital allocation and portfolio management processes, using IFC’s own investment practices as a model. IFC is playing its part to support the growth of the market by funding the development of enhanced stock market indices, financial instruments, and through targeted market research.Who Cares Wins (WCW) was initiated by the UN Secretary General and UN Global Compact in 2004 in collaboration with the Swiss government. The initiative was endorsed by 23 financial institutions collectively representing more than US$6 trillion in assets. IFC and the World Bank Group were among the endorsing institutions.From 2004 to 2008, the UN Global Compact, IFC, and the Swiss government sponsored a series of closed-door/ invitation-only events for investment professionals, providing a platform for asset managers and investment researchers to engage with institutional asset owners, companies and other private and public actors on ESG issues. The initiative aimed to increase the industry’s understanding of ESG risks and opportunities, and to improve integration of ESG into the investment decision making. Each event considered a particular element of ESG mainstreaming, from the interface between investors and companies to the particular role of ESG issues in emerging markets investment. These are discussed in more detail in the respective reports published after each event. In concluding four years of consultations with the industry, the final report proposes actions for further ESG integration – scaling up current know-how in order to attain widespread integration of ESG issues into financial markets.
