Driven by both internal and external factors, sustainability must be high on each company’s agenda.

Roland Berger’s analysis of 100+ European banks shows that environmental and corporate governance initiatives have a significantly positive ROE impact and therefore have also a positive effect on shareholder value. Nonetheless, experience shows that banks are pursuing ESG initiatives in many areas, yet initiatives are often limited to the surface.

Conversely, Sustainability development for insurance companies has multiple angles to be considered (Portfolio investments, Underwriting, Business activities), ultimately impacting the key stakeholders (Investors, Customers, Employees)

Pressure is mounting on CFOs to report the climate impact of their operations and the associated risks and business opportunities.

Finance departments will play a central role in climate impact reporting, underpinned by a strong data-driven approach to external reporting and audit.

Time: 9am US ET / 2pm UK / 3pm Europe / 9pm HKT
