Enabling Sustainability Shift

  • We at Synechron believe the much-desired Sustainability shift will be powered by Sustainable Finance (SF) in the time to come
  • For Synechron both the SF regulatory regime as well as the ever-growing appetite for ESG are equally important topics
  • Our constant endeavor is to look at this shift in a holistic manner by leveraging the power of 3, ESG Booster is a perfect example in this regard

Sustainable Finance is a mainstream topic not only based on push (governmental action & regulatory guidance) but also pull (societal pressure)

Our Vision On Sustainable Finance

Time has come to embrace Sustainable Finance with open arms.  

Our vision on Sustainable Finance

Impact on financial institutions

Sustainable Finance is expected to rapidly mature and impact is not limited to one department or domain

  • Although there is a lot of momentum on disclosures and reporting requirements, the SF developments impact institutions across spectrum of core processes
  • Unlike many standalone regulations impacting only a given function or department, SF requires change across the board including paradigm shift in mindset

Why is it critical to look at Sustainable Finance and its impact now?

  • Climate awareness in society has been rising since the Paris Agreement and seems to have finally taken centre stage
  • Multiple natural disasters in the past years that make the potential effects of climate change even more tangible
  • The Green Deal proposal in the EU is a political landmark, showing the EU is serious about its climate change ambitions
  • The EU Action Plan has the underlying aim to move investments to more greener/sustainable initiatives
  • Green products are popping up like never before
