About this paper
The banking sector has a significant role to play in our planet's future sustainability. Customers are saying that it's the right thing to do, suppliers are coming on-board and staff are engaged. Shareholders, too, have recently added their voice, understanding that the lack of a sustainability strategy poses a very real threat to reputational risk and hence shareholder value. This paper highlights the challenges for sustainable banking -- that is, building a future that integrates consumer, supplier and shareholder demands while decreasing the impact on the worlds resources. It also outlines a strategic approach to seizing the opportunities and realizing the benefits that have been gained and are anticipated as the strategy unfolds.
