How TIS Operations Support Global ESG Initiatives

TIS & Treasury ESG Standards

Modern ESG initiatives consist of three pillars: Environment, Social, and Governance. Together, these aspects form a framework that is used to help evaluate a company’s performance in terms of long-term sustainability and well-being. Many investors are looking for carefully planned, forward-thinking programs in all three areas. ESG helps bring relevant financial and non-financial business risks and liabilities to the surface so that customers can make more informed decisions and more sustainable investments.

  • ESG is a system of risk-based evaluation criteria that makes the company’s sustainability performance and risk interpretable for the financial and investing world. At the end of the process, the company is provided with a rating like a credit rating. Such a classification creates a clear and unambiguous decision for investors – according to their investment policy, they can decide whether to invest in a particular company.
  • ESGs of some large global companies are evaluated regularly and automatically. Smaller companies need to request the evaluation. An ESG rating is particularly recommended if a company wants to appear in the capital markets, for example – if it wants to go public or is looking for institutional investors.
  • In recent years, international guidelines, and later standards (e.g. GRI Standards), have been published to improve and standardize the quality of reports. Current processes point to a standardization of reporting requirements.
  • In order to achieve Europe’s sustainability goals, it is essential that companies provide better data on their sustainability risks and their impact on people and the environment.
  • There are different forms of ESG reports; Non-Financial Reporting Directive (NFRD), Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR), & EU Taxonomy. In the near future NFRD will be replaced by Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD).
