ESG Risk Management - Part 1
Identifying, assessing, and incorporating environmental, social, and governance (ESG) risks into their operations has become a key aspect of many banks’ management strategies. This comes against a backdrop of increased scrutiny by governments, regulators, nongovernmental organisations (NGOs), and the general public over the role of the financial sector in addressing socioeconomic challenges and facilitating the growing opportunities for private players to explore new sustainability-related paradigms within their business plans.
