Improved decision making

The financial sector is increasingly accepting the reality of how sustainability mega trends are having widespread impact across a range of sectors, geographies and companies. For financial institutions looking to support the transition to a low-carbon economy, now is the time to integrate enhanced policy frameworks, processes and structures into everyday decision making. Doing so will improve your ability to manage risk, understand the sustainability realities of clients' businesses, and become a partner of choice in financing the future.

The issues

Climate change, water scarcity, population growth and resource constraints are all combining to create the perfect sustainability storm. Banks are faced with a range of emerging issues, some of which may prove to be systemic, and which will certainly alter the financial landscape of the future in ways that are potentially more significant than the recent financial crisis.
