Tuesday, 7 July 2020, 10:00-11:00 BST

Environmental, Social and Governance standards are increasingly in focus for investors, the public and regulators alike. Within trade finance, how can we encourage customers to opt for sustainable sourcing, low-emission transport and providing ESG-friendly products? Our second call from our Financial Institutions Forum will be hosted by Sabry Salman, Global Head of Banks & Head of UKFI, and Divyesh Modi, Head of UK Trade & Working Capital Origination, who will be discussing ESG financing trends, sustainable trade financing, and the impact of technology on the sustainability agenda.

Returning to BAU after Covid-19

The Covid-19 pandemic has had a huge impact on businesses across the globe. As lockdown is starting to ease in some countries, many of us are looking forward to things returning to business as usual. Our host Phil Bowkley, Global Head of Financial Institutions Group, will be joined with Charles Lindsey, Head of BI Resilience and US Physical Security, Steve Allen, COO, Corporate Banking, and Fabrice Montagne, Chief UK Economist. They will be discussing how the way in which we define BAU has now changed, and why businesses are faced with a complex set of decisions that they need to navigate when returning to a more normal working environment.
