Our company is acutely aware of the impact that matters of a non-financial nature such as those presented by environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors have on investment decision-making. Although these factors are considered in investments that we make, we acknowledge that there are elements that are lacking in terms of ESG integration throughout our entire value chain.
Be that as it may, we are following a phased and systematic process to ESG integration.
