Sustainability management in finance
By actively managing the environmental and climate risks of their operational activities and portfolios, financial institutions and investors can encourage sustainable development while simultaneously becoming more resilient themselves. However, they often lack the necessary information, skills, and structures to be able to address such risks.
adelphi advises financial service providers on the development of environmental guidelines and on setting up management systems to account for environmental, social and governance risks (ESG) in their portfolios. Particular focus is on taking long-term ESG risks into account and on building up the financial institutions’ capacities for mitigating green risks. For this purpose, we also assess the sustainability performance of investment portfolios and contribute to the establishment of networks bringing together representatives of sustainable financing.
