Banking for sustainability: the policy, regulatory and financial case for action
In today’s increasingly challenging era, the ﬁnancial sector has a signiﬁcant role in catalysing the global transition to sustainable development and shared prosperity. Sustainability can be practiced from the inside (ﬁnancial institutions’ internal operation) to the outside (ﬁnancial institutions’ ﬁnancing and investment). Yet, can banks do well while doing good? Does a bank that improves its economic, environmental, social and governance performance increase, decrease, or leave unchanged its ﬁnancial performance? Is the banking sector up to the challenge as the steward of long-term capital, preserving and enhancing different types of capital in the value creation process?
