Baringa’s benchmarking analysis shows where US mid-tier banks are leading and lagging on environmental, social and governance (ESG) priorities.
Climate change is climbing up the global agenda, putting financial services firms under growing pressure to reduce emissions and support the transition to net zero. So far, most of the supervisory scrutiny in the US has been aimed at large banks. But smaller financial institutions could find themselves under the spotlight sooner than expected. How prepared are mid-tiers to meet this fast-evolving regulatory landscape?
To answer the question, we benchmarked 18 US-based mid-tier banks on their climate commitments and reporting. Our analysis reveals that mid-tiers appear to be at the very start of their net zero journeys and are underutilizing climate risk tools.
