Finance’s Role in the New Era

Financial institutions are increasingly leveraging the value of Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) from both risk management and business opportunity perspectives. FIs are not only using ESG to protect their operations and investments; they are also leveraging it as a tool to differentiate their brands and increase customer attraction and retention.

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

I have worked with Anthesis for many years. They have a depth of ESG understanding and expertise, allowing real analysis and advice on the emerging issues that are becoming increasingly material to our clients. What sets them apart is their willingness and ability to apply this, together with technology solutions, to enhance the quality and speed of their reporting.

Paul Davies – Latham & Watkins

Anthesis supported us in the preparation of our 2018 Integrated Report and in the development of the materiality analysis of Roche Colombia. Their experience and knowledge were key to allowing us to focus on the most important issues for our company and stakeholders, and helped them [our stakeholders]  understand our advances in environmental, economic, social and good corporate governance.

Alejandro Wilches – Roche

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.


Over the last 18 months, Anthesis’ expert but human approach has seen our partnership grow across a multitude of areas of ESG. An absolute pleasure to work with, Anthesis have seamlessly integrated into our ways of working. Immediately grasping where we were in our ESG maturity, they have shown a genuine desire to help us move things forward through applying expertise and passion from across a vast array of subjects and sectors.
