As environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues continue to gain attention in the U.S., banks need to start adopting and embedding ESG into their strategies now.

With the increased focus on social and environmental factors in the regulatory and investment community, banks need to ramp up their ESG disclosure, start to assess the financial impacts of climate change and highlight their commitments to all stakeholders and their communities.

But ESG shouldn’t be viewed as simply another regulatory box to check, but rather an opportunity to achieve long-term value creation. The most competitive banks are already moving to adopt ESG strategies, are you?

  • How can you integrate ESG into your business strategy?
