Finance

The growing global focus on ESG regulations, voluntary disclosure standards, frameworks, incentives and targets are driving corporate leaders and financial institutions to integrate ESG commitments and disclosures into their financing considerations across the board. Organisations are being forced to quickly respond to changing sustainability policies and increasing stakeholder scrutiny.

Financial markets and financial institutions play an important role in steering the necessary transformation of the real economy towards higher levels of sustainability in the finance industry: disclosure, risk management, and the mobilisation of capital. The sector has become a key agent of change in the facilitation of the green and socially just transition; creating the capital framework for its sustainability.
