Banking and Finance
The ESBN Task force on Banking and Finance promotes the mobilization of financial resources for inclusive, resilient and sustainable development, and encourages banks and financial institutions to adopt responsible and sustainable business practices. It does so by raising awareness on the importance of corporate sustainability accounting and undertaking policy advocacy in the areas of responsible and sustainable banking and finance.
Currently, the Task Force aims to facilitate a more responsible, inclusive, and conducive, financial and regulatory environment in the spheres of FinTech, Insurtech, Regtech and Green Finance. It also plans to set up an internship program that will help shape young people towards building a good foundation for responsible business leadership.
