📑 Following the completion of COP 27 in November 2022, the key tagline of “Together For Implementation” stands in focus: moving from emissions reductions commitments, to the urgent need to execute on the decarbonisation agenda within the real economy with the Financial Services sector providing financing to support this transition. Bank capabilities however are still playing catch up to both growing sustainable finance demand, and increasingly complex regulatory requirements which are placing a strain on Financial Services operational capabilities and cost structure. The response to these challenges requires a holistic, pan-enterprise assessment of a bank’s operational structure, and accepting that FS business and operating models will need to change drastically in order to create a future ready Financial Service organisation.
