Investors are increasingly looking at companies to be more transparent about their operations, and are using a wider range of environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria when looking at businesses. DCA has a long history working with companies and their supply chains on ESG issues, as well as SRI (Socially Responsible Investment) and work with Modern Slavery.
The increasingly broad set of ownership and investment models, including crowdfunding, venture capital or hybrid private/public ownership, brings many challenges for business. At the same time, publicly traded shares are increasingly held by a wider and more informed constituency. To add to this melee, many institutional investors want to introduce more rigorous engagement of a wider set of ESG criteria. DCA can help to navigate this maelstrom.
