We leverage data to drive sustainable development in South America by promoting ESG investing
About Mosoj ESG
Mosoj ESG is an economic and business intelligence platform focusing on South America. Our aim is on providing information and analyses that are relevant to investors, economic players and in particular to ESG investors and those interested in Sustainable Development goals.
To do so, we write a weekly newsletter around economic, business and ESG matters in South America, picking the 10-20 pieces of news that actually mattered and explaining what they mean, with analysis and opinion to put things in context. In addition, subscribers to the free edition get an email with the core news and links for all the countries we cover.
Furthermore, we provide a range of in-depth data-driven analysis covering country-specific economies, industries and businesses as well as themes or policies impacting the life of businesses. These analyses are written by internationally reputable specialists, providing independent thinking, which we then overlay with our own “house” view. Importantly, we try to avoid commenting on the politics of countries, and focus mostly on assessing impacts on businesses, investment and trade with an ESG perspective.
In the global context of ESG investing, South America – a sub-continent with immense potential and resources – should play a critical role, particularly as it is the home of the Amazon, a unique and critical economic asset. In this respect, we view ESG investing positively as it brings together the private sector, global financial markets, and civil society by taking into account local considerations in terms of business’ impact on environmental, social and governance factors.
To play our part in promoting sustainable investments or standards of practice, we have thus developed our own ESG model, combining big-data analytics, financial analysis, together with human-network intelligence providing qualitative considerations. This enables us to benchmark companies under a unique transparent ESG framework that provides a robust understanding of business’ added value or cost to society. This is important as we adhere to the Brundtland report definition of sustainability: “Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”
