Arriving at our decision was done through gathering specific ESG and capital markets data. In total, we received more than 75 individual submissions and crunched through 10s of thousands of public data points, concerning the world’s biggest 100 banks by assets, to arrive at our decisions.
Using our unique methodology, the data fed into our Headline Awards and Industry Specialist Awards and informed the final rankings for each category within them. There are three key data components: ESG, sustainable policies, and sustainable finance.
Split evenly between environmental, social and governance, we assessed the internal activities of banks (e.g. Gender pay gap). There are 21 metrics, and points were awarded for reporting of those metrics and hitting internal targets. Additional points were gained where institutions track higher than their peer group.
Targeting fossil fuel exclusion policies and financing/advisory into selected UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), we look to establish the clarity of an institution’s exclusion and inclusion policies. Points are awarded where exclusions exist and where capital/advisory services have supported specific SDGs.
Focused on banks’ client-led capital markets activities, we covered the public green and sustainable deals, split between deal type and deal volume. Points were awarded based on the level of activity achieved. Additional points were earned for deals where impact is more easily measured and monitored.
We love innovation
The third component of our awards is the Sustainable Innovation Awards section. We invited all banks across the globe to provide us with examples of deals and transactions that supported your clients in becoming more sustainable.
With specific emphasis on individual deals, these judge-led case studies awards celebrate the best in financial ingenuity, paving new ways to support clients in their bid to support Sustainable Development Goals via capital markets, lending, trade finance, supply chain finance, cash and liquidity management.
We wish to thank all who took part in our awards and congratulate all of those who were recognised for their innovation and commitment to sustainability.
