An exploration of the challenges faced and potential strategies for banks to address, in a way that can create business value:

• Accelerating changes in investor expectations on ESG

• Central Bank and Government pressure to meet Net Zero Carbon in 2050

KEY LEARNING OUTCOMES:

An opportunity to take stock of the various pressures that are driving changes in investment and business thinking towards a more long-term focus, sharpened by the Climate Crisis and to share experiences, review external ideas and possibilities to enable participants to set a new direction that will enable banks to meet medium and long-term strategic objectives for ESG standards.

Objective is to turn a challenge into an opportunity for innovation and creation of business advantage for the industry.

Approach is to take a transversal view with someone who has worked in government, across the banking industry as front office, operations and risk management, now at the leading edge of building value-creating mindsets with practical solutions for Culture and Purpose and who is also at the heart of an external project to transform across several industries with Net Zero Carbon as the target.

Agenda:

  • A review of the trends and likely pressures
  • Examples of what some FIs are talking about/doing – how such Cultures underpin Strategies to deliver Purpose that creates Value in the long-term
  • The benefit of Purpose-driven alliances – pie-building vs pie-sharing.
  • Examples of cutting-edge thinking
  • A roundtable discussion on the potential benefits of a building a fresh strategic perspective with tangible operational actions by embedding Environmental, Social and Governance principles throughout the firm.
