Sustainable Finance & ESG
Sustainability and consideration of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors, is a regulatory imperative. It is critical to business success for all industries and will determine viability in the 2020’s. It’s about more than just what a company is doing to mitigate climate change. ESG criteria brings into focus data on how a company treats its workers, how it’s tackling the gender pay gap, its Diversity & Inclusion agenda, flexible working, the impact of its supply chain, on the mechanics of its governance, and how positive a role it plays within its community and to broader society. Flimsy, lip-service sustainability responses are going to be consigned to the past, as public sentiment on climate change accelerates, catalysed by the urgency of a new generation.
In this panel discussion hosted by KPMG, we will discuss how we can ensure that going forward financial services will become a force for good.
