Sustainability is a growing focus of business, finance and investment. Yet it remains a highly complex and often confusing subject: from the implications of a low carbon economy on individual industries, to investor demands for transparency and the unexplored interactions between environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors.

Pooling our experience in banking, wealth management and foreign direct investment, we will provide readers with insights and analysis to help them make sense of the ESG space. Every month, we will share opinion pieces by professionals with the authority and technical knowledge to influence this space, as well as data stories that highlight the more interesting or unexpected developments around sustainability. We will also provide access to our in-depth, well-researched journalism across The Banker and its sister titles PWM and fDi Intelligence.
