“Banks and financial institutions are in the frontline of internal and external environmental, social and governance (ESG) risk management. Artificial intelligence (AI) is an invaluable ally to help interpret the relevant data and information.
The pressure on corporations to live up to ESG principles has risen dramatically over the last decade. Employees, investors, regulators and suppliers scrutinise a business statements and actions for evidence of doing the right thing in a range of areas that include climate change, human rights and anti-corruption. When a corporation is also a bank or financial institution, that only ramps up the attention. Naturally, people will be concerned about a company’s conduct.”
