WWF guide for banks provides plan for sustainable finance – WWF – August 27, 2014

“A new guide released on August 27, 2014 by WWF explains how banks can go beyond reputation and risk management to embrace transformative change. Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Integration for Banks: A Guide to Starting Implementation shows how financial institutions acting as lenders, financial advisors and capital raising agents can adopt sustainable practices.

‘This is the first guide that maps out ‘how to’ steps for financial institutions in the earlier stages of their ESG journey. It shows them how to manage their risk exposure to unsustainable business practices and lead the trend toward green business,’ said Jeanne Stampe, WWF Asia Finance and Commodities Specialist.”
