Most investors want to maximize return while managing risk. Increasingly, investors pay attention to environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors when evaluating the performance and value of businesses, especially those operating in interconnected global markets.

Televisa has shared its ESG practices with investors through an annual sustainability report since 2012. In 2017, Televisa requested support from BNY Mellon to improve its ESG disclosure and practices. BNY Mellon guided Televisa on sustainability rating scope and methodology, benchmarked its ESG performance versus its peers and advised them on presentation, transparency and investor communications.

BNY Mellon also connected Televisa with two leading ESG research providers who identified information missing from its sustainability assessments. This work resulted in a revised and improved ESG performance assessment for Televisa. “BNY Mellon provided a credible external perspective,” said Carlos Madrazo, Televisa’s Head of Investor Relations. “The benchmarking report shows us where we stand, identifies gaps, quantifies results and makes our progress measurable. It demonstrates our sustainability achievements and helps ensure our future competitiveness.”
