Overview

Sustainable Finance In Transaction Banking

Sustainability and ESG have become public and private sector priorities. Banks and financial service institutions have altered their strategies to include environmental and social criteria, while governments have been considering a wide-variety of policy initiatives to drive corporate behavior.

For some years, banks have been offering ESG-linked products, including green bonds and sustainable loans, and various markets have developed mechanisms to trade carbon credits. However, in order for sustainability-linked banking to gain traction and ubiquity, there is general agreement that standard market definitions, methodologies, measurements, reporting, and incentives are needed.

Featured Themes

The workshop will provide various viewpoints from leading sustainability experts and speakers including government representatives, regulators, banks, financial institutions, and corporates. Additionally, the program will cover trends in both product offerings and strategies utilized by financial institutions in relation to the incorporation of sustainability internally.

BAFT’s Virtual Sustainability Workshop will allow participants to learn standard definitions of sustainability, sustainable finance, applications of sustainability in transaction banking, and differences in ESG verticals and taxonomies.

Who Should Attend

  • Chief Experience Officer (CXO), Chief Sustainability Officer (CSO), Director of Sustainability, Director of ESG, Chief Officer of the Environment, Director of Sustainable Finance
  • Senior Leaders, Relationship Managers, Product Managers, Product Sales, Credit Officers, and others involved in cash management, trade finance, and international banking
  • Professional qualification holders requiring CPDs for CDCS, CSDG, CSCF, CTFC, CTFP, and GTC

Register today to learn common challenges faced when adopting ESG within transaction banking and opportunities to implement and explore within your institution.
