Event Summary

Sustainable finance and ESG integration are fast becoming a global preoccupation for the banking sector. As ESG reporting shifts from niche to mainstream and begins to have balance sheet implications, investors are raising challenging questions on how ESG performance is assessed, managed, and reported on across core banking business units. From corporate governance and board composition to loan portfolio credit quality, new data is driving a shift in approach to ESG integration and reporting across jurisdictions.

This unique webinar will dig into the details of how ESG risks and opportunities can have material impacts on bank balance sheets, investor returns and the long-term financial health of the global economy. The discussion will consider key ESG trends in the banking sector from the perspective of reporting banks, investors, and one of the world’s largest investment data analysts. Join us to learn how responsible investment and corporate governance policies are helping to raise professional and ethical banking standards, and how action on ESG themes is evolving in a time of market turbulence.
