A Letter From Our CEO: Accelerating Sustainability
The beginning of a new year is always a great time for reflection, even more so when it’s the beginning of a new decade. At Black & Veatch, we design and build projects to operate for decades, so the long view comes naturally. It was with this spirit that in 2019 we undertook a series of initiatives to embrace the world we see today and prepare for the world we want in the years ahead.
As the 2020 ESG (Environment, Social, and Governance) season begins, we appear to be entering the third era of ESG investment integration.
The first generation of ESG investors used data on topics such as product involvement (alcohol, tobacco, gambling) or business practices (anti-union, involvement in Burma) to screen out “bad” companies. These investors often relied on a single data provider and simple guidelines (e.g., <5% of revenue is OK, more than 5% of revenue is bad).
