The sustainability challenge
The sustainability agenda is driving many concerns facing business leaders today, including growth, funding costs, regulatory compliance, and talent retention.
Banks, investors, insurers, and their regulators are vital in supporting our transition to a future sustainable economy. They direct flows of capital into new technologies and projects and will account for much of our future financing needs. However, most financial institutions need to be better prepared in order to respond to the sustainability challenges and opportunities faced.
