3 Basic concepts to understand sustainability

The importance of sustainability grows day by day as the conditions and lifestyles of societies evolve.

With this, the range of terms used in sustainable issues is becoming more robust thanks to the technologies, contributions and innovations that are created in this search for positive impacts for the world.

At Eosis we want to help you understand what these terms and acronyms refer to. This practical guide will help you expand and reinforce your knowledge.


ESG
Environment, Social and Governance investing

It stands for environmental, social and governance investment, also known as sustainable investment. These are intended to report the measurable positive impacts of a company or sector in environmental, social and governance aspects.

Sustainable investing is promoted by the Association of Principles of Responsible Investment (PRI), a UN-backed body whose goal is to create sustainable markets that contribute to a prosperous world for all.

For more information on ESG we invite you to review our Third Quarterly Report.

Net Zero
Net Zero Emissions

It is about achieving neutrality of the carbon emissions produced, in other words, balancing the amount of emissions that we put into the atmosphere with the amount that we remove.

The main objective of this is to stop global warming and keep it at levels that do not threaten the lives and livelihoods of living beings around the world.

SDG
Sustainable Development Goals

These constitute a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and improve the lives and prospects of people around the world. In 2015, all United Nations Member States approved 17 Sustainable Development Goals, which establish a plan to achieve the Goals by 2030.
