We help corporates advance their sustainability strategy and objectives through embedding ESG into their financing and treasury agenda.
We offer our corporate customers a broad range of sustainable finance and advisory services and products. Together, these can help develop a sustainable treasury function – one that supports the ESG objectives of the company by using ESG treasury tools across multiple dimensions, such as: financing, liquidity, ratings, financial risk management, investor relations and supply chain management.
In doing so, we can support our customers in optimising their sustainability decisions to match the requirements of multiple key stakeholders in sustainable finance.
