Navigating the ESG landscape Are financial institutions ready?.jpg

The world of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) compliance is becoming increasingly intricate and crucial for financial institutions (FIs). Amid this rapidly changing landscape, where sustainability and responsible investing have taken centre stage, FIs find themselves under mounting pressure to navigate these challenges effectively.

Fenergo, which builds SaaS-based solutions to empower financial institutions, has released a whitepaper exploring the most pressing challenges around ESG compliance within finance.

FIs now stand at a critical crossroad, aiming to strike a delicate equilibrium between regulatory duties and maintaining a seamless customer experience. As the obligations surrounding ESG regulations become more demanding, it is paramount for these institutions to meet these expectations, whilst also safeguarding operational efficiency and cost-effectiveness.

However, fulfilling ESG requirements goes beyond merely meeting regulatory standards. FIs should not just pay lip service to ESG principles. Instead, it is essential for them to establish robust strategies that transcend the language of compliance and showcase meaningful contributions towards a sustainable future.

Let’s delve into the most pressing ESG challenges and trends that are affecting FIs today, offering you a practical checklist to ensure your institution is prepared for this new era of ESG compliance.

Some of the key insights you can gain from this checklist include an understanding of the major obstacles FIs encounter around ESG compliance, the factors that complicate the implementation and integration of ESG, and the reasons for consolidating ESG into existing Customer Lifecycle Management (CLM) processes and staff capabilities. Furthermore, you’ll also learn how FIs utilise ESG compliance to break down organisational silos and inefficiencies.
