An increasing number of banks and other financial service providers are meeting the challenges of environmental protection in their business operations, mitigating their direct environmental impacts by implementing measures such as building renovations and energy conservation. Indirect environmental issues (such environmental criteria in lending and investment decisions) are also highly important in this sector.

adelphi carried out an assessment for a financial service provider about the benefits of EMAS in comparison to ISO 14001. The key question was whether and in what ways the validation of environmental data as part of the EMAS environmental statement is beneficial for a financial service provider.
