Finance

Sustainable finance is key to a resilient future.

The finance sector is a critical leverage point for positive change. Through availability of credit and cost of capital, the finance sector shapes the structure of the economy.

The coming decades will bring new types of risks and opportunities for financial institutions. We work to support these institutions in making more sustainable decisions, by assessing both risks and impacts across multiple areas, as well as guiding investments towards new circular economic opportunities.
