Senior Vice President of VTB: Social aspect is key in the ESG agenda

According to the Head of Market Sector Clients — Dmitry Snesar, Senior Vice President at VTB, although the social aspect is key in the ESG (environmental, social, governance) agenda, it remains undeservingly overlooked.

«So, we arrive at ESG. These three letters stormed into our lives not a year and a half ago and have already gone mainstream. Many a great mind have expressed their views on it. One might think there is nothing more to say. However, in my opinion, ESG has one aspect that I think is key. And this aspect is, as I see it, undeservingly overlooked — the social aspect», he said.

ESG is a set of characteristics of company management that achieves this company’s involvement in environmental, social and governance issues. About the forum
