ESG and Sustainability

The transition to net zero puts existing economic and social models into question, creating a demand for system-wide change. The scale of transformation needed requires buy-in from society but this will only be gained by addressing social issues and making sure no one is left behind.

Financial institutions need to make tough decisions that consider economic, environmental and social impacts to pave a just and fair path to net zero. The rationale goes beyond improving reputation: firms need to consider the spectrum of ESG factors that will unlock shared value for the organisation, the planet and society.
