Once a fringe concern, environmental, social and governance (ESG) has become increasingly important to investment and financing decisions. And with climate change high on the global political, social and media agenda, it’s time to make the ‘E’ in ESG a priority.  

As major investors invest in new technology, the financial sector has the power to drive the energy transition globally. However, investors and lenders also need to support the existing industries they serve to the best of their abilities, helping businesses overcome the challenges so they can grasp the opportunities the energy transition presents.  

At the same time, banks and financial institutions must deal with mounting policy, regulatory and reputational risks. New regulations require greater transparency and disclosure of ESG-related data, while investors and lenders face growing scrutiny from diverse stakeholders of how their decisions affect the climate and wider society. This inevitably means banks, asset managers, institutional investors and private equity funds must set and follow stricter rules regarding the funding they can offer.  

In this dynamic and rapidly evolving environment, lending and investing effectively and advising clients on business strategy presents banks and financial institutions with both an ongoing challenge and an exciting opportunity.
