ESG Services for Financial Institutions

Finance Sector Support

Financial Institutions (FIs) are increasingly leveraging the value of Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) from both a risk management and opportunity perspective.

As well as protecting operations and investments, FIs are using ESG to differentiate their brands for both investment and employees, as well as customer attraction and retention.

FIs are subject to a series of recent and emerging regulatory standards that are driving significant action. These cover a range of ESG topics, including climate risk, and increasingly, product classifications. The sector also has industry frameworks and organisations driving common approaches and standards around ESG and Responsible Investment.

Anthesis’ Sustainable Finance team understands these unique challenges and has delivered ESG strategy development and implementation support to a broad range of financial institutions across banking, insurance, asset owners and managers (including Private Equity), brokerage, support and advisory business, and worked with multinational financial institutions, and regional and national regulators and supervisory agencies.

In addition, our team brings decades of experience of supporting our clients with mergers and acquisition and transaction support as well as with sustainable finance products.

We help Financial Institutions to achieve three key objectives

 

ESG Strategy
ESG Implementation and Transformation
ESG Reporting and Disclosure
Developing ESG strategies that both integrate good practices within the management of an FI and allow the development of a strong brand narrative, by evaluating regulatory demands, ESG risks and opportunities, stakeholder feedback and peer analysis. This can include developing a Responsible Investment approach.
Activating ESG strategies by developing new frameworks, tools and systems and teams that embed ESG into an FI’s day-to-day operations and ensure compliance.
Supporting external disclosures and reporting in compliance with voluntary and mandatory reporting requirements and brand strategy, as well as internal reporting on ESG and sustainability data and projects.

We wanted the ESG screen as we were keen to understand the definition of ESG and to see the criteria you would be using. We were also interested to see how others would view us through this lens. The Anthesis screen provided us a with a “mirror”. The value to Neste was that it confirmed we are on a right track to addressing ESG issues. It also helped us to identify some potential improvement opportunities, several of which we are working on, and others that warrant further evaluation.
