VTV: A universal information source

The FT's ESG coverage enables colleagues at VTV to remain informed on changing events, and speak to the specific events from each country they collaborate with, to build relationships with colleagues around the world and encourage discussion.

I see the FT as a global research tool that has readers all over the world.

It creates a common language to use a high-quality news source.
