This case study focuses on one of our global clients; a leading international banking and financial services organisation. As ESG investing enters the mainstream, our client’s relationship managers needed to quickly upskill so they could better discuss their clients’ requirements and make suitable recommendations.
European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) has played a leading role among multilateral development banks (MDBs) as a pioneer in the delivery of climate finance. To align with its commitment to sustainability, the EBRD partnered with Euromoney to upskill its 3,500 employees.
Financial institutions face growing pressure from various stakeholders to lead in sustainability. Our client is dedicated to aligning products with ESG weighting and ensuring all departments meet strict targets.
