Managing Partner of ECOFACT AG
ECOFACT AG, Zurich, Switzerland
Definition Responsible Investment Banking
When entering into a client relationship, banks should understand all of the risks involved. Environmental and social (E&S) risks can be the source of other types of risks. Banks must therefore make sure that an E&S due diligence is performed. This will also help to ensure that the bank is in line with relevant E&S standards, with which compliance, in many cases, is becoming increasingly mandatory.
