Implementing Agenda 2030 and its global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) requires a concerted effort from institutions and the private sector. Sustainable Finance plays a crucial role in achieving this. International directives like Sustainability Reporting are shaping the landscape, emphasizing ESG criteria. This paper compares various sustainability frameworks and highlights the importance of ESG criteria for sustainability analyses and portfolio selection. It also suggests an integrated ERM framework to align sustainability with financial decisions, enhancing coherence with SDGs and facilitating cross-framework integration.
