NBB and BisB chairmen and board members, executives and employees engaged in a virtual ESG and Sustainability awareness session, led by Dr. Bernard Duffy an expert in Global Wealth Management, Fund Management and the Institutional Pension sectors.
During the session, Dr. Duffy shared knowledge about the growing importance of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) considerations within the financial services sector, and how ESG is impacting the decision-making process of potential investors, stakeholders and the communities in which banks operate.
The session, attended by 370 individuals from across the NBB Group, focused on how an organisation can be both socially responsible and engage in impactful investing. Dr. Duffy outlined and provided examples of the different types of ESG reporting banks should be considering and how institutional investors and banks are increasingly considering sustainability issues when making investments and undertaking loans.
