About the event
As banks battle complex sustainability issues and the pressure to prioritise sustainable activity mounts, questions remain around both the validity and the evenness of disclosure around ESG performances. Regulators continue to create and debate the most effective way to analyse, quantify and present ESG credibility, to which large scale banking institutions are frequently expected to respond. Financial institutions now need ways to better collect, analyse and distribute quality data on ESG data points not only from a financial perspective, but also across other operations aspects from energy consumption to diverse workforces.
With the threat of greenwashing very much present, how can incumbent banks better support their private sector clients in a way that protects both their reputation and their commitment to making positive change? How far are banks able to support clients at risk of enhanced ESG-related shareholder activism, what can they do to demonstrate their ESG credentials to fend off such efforts? Has the ESG agenda moved to be more private sector driven rather than public? What are the next steps for the sector?
Hosted by The Banker in partnership with S&P, this one-hour webinar will bring together leading ESG professionals from the banking ecosystem seeking to ensure that they are able to function in a sustainable way and also prove their sustainability for both themselves and their clients. Chaired by Marie Kemplay, Investment Banking and Capital Markets Editor of The Banker, our panel of expert speakers will look to cover the greatest challenges brought on by greater ESG implementation.
