The Challenge

The Challenge

Seize opportunities, minimize risks

Never before has there been so much awareness of the impact of our actions on the environment and society worldwide. The climate movements and the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the EU's Green Deal, and governments' Sustainable Finance strategies are setting binding sustainability targets - also in the financial sector. Financial service providers can no longer only distinguish themselves through financial key figures but must also disclose how they deal with sustainability aspects. The ESG criteria are the verifiable assessment basis in the dimensions of environment, social affairs and good governance. 

Active action here offers enormous opportunities to differentiate oneself from the competition. However, the integration of sustainability aspects into business models and decision-making processes is also mandatory under supervisory law, as the increasing number of regulations and requirements from a risk perspective makes clear. Thus, all financial service providers, from banks to insurance companies, must address the consequences of their actions and sustainability risks, with a comprehensive view of strategy, data, methods, and IT implementation, as well as management and disclosure.
