Equipping financial services for the ESG era

To stay relevant, financial services companies must move from treating ESG as a cost of doing business to using it as a fundamental strategy to increase revenue and drive growth

The business world’s commitment to sustainability has been growing rapidly, and it is increasingly clear that sustainability improvements are more than a matter of just “doing the right thing.” They are also key to building customer loyalty, developing new revenue channels, and driving future growth. As a result, many companies around the globe no longer view corporate responsibility as a secondary issue but as a central business imperative.

Although all major financial services companies are touting their commitment to environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues, the few that can crack the code of achieving concrete success in the near term will capture an important competitive advantage in attracting customers, investors, and talented professionals. A critical first step will be adopting a more rigorous approach to ESG data that allows them to tap into more data, standardize and share data, and use AI and analytics to put that data to work internally and for customers.
