Memberships and Commitments
As a global provider of financial advisory, underwriting and lending services for clients in a range of sectors and geographies around the world, we recognize that our business decisions have the potential to impact surrounding communities and the environment. We believe that balancing non-financial factors such as environmental and social issues with financial priorities is fundamental to sound risk management and a core part of corporate responsibility.
Our Environmental and Social Policy Framework reflects how we integrate considerations of potential environmental and social impacts into corporate lending, advisory and capital markets transactions, along with our broader approach to key issues such as climate change, biodiversity and human rights. Our approach has been informed by a substantive and ongoing dialogue with a broad set of stakeholders including clients, investors and non-governmental organizations. The Framework will be revised periodically to reflect evolution in the market, industry best practice and our business.
