Professor Vendramini’s research and work on Bitcoin and its relation to ESG analysis offer readers three key takeaways from the book insight “Can the Bitcoin Be Subject to ESG Analysis?”. Firstly, Bitcoin can be subject to an ESG analysis by potential investors, highlighting the importance of responsible investing.
Interestingly, Blockchain, the technology in which Bitcoin is based, is currently being used to enhance traceability and verification in a whole variety of areas.
Bitcoin generates a large carbon footprint due to mining and high waste generation, which has negative environmental impacts that must be considered. Secondly, Bitcoin poses risks to social and governance factors, particularly in terms of potential illegal uses such as money laundering and terrorism, making it important to consider safety and suitability for investors.
Finally, Prof. Vendramini also discusses the positive potential of Blockchain – the technology behind Bitcoin – in increasing validation and traceability in various sectors such as health records, food security, and secure voting.
“In the context of responsible finance and accounting, understanding these key takeaways is essential,” says Prof. Vendramini. She adds, “We need to consider ways in which these novelties are related to the goal of reaching sustainable development.”
Overall, the insight provides a comprehensive analysis of the environmental, social, and governance impacts of Bitcoin, along with practical solutions for ensuring responsible investing and sustainable development.
