Sustainable finance, as defined by the European Commission, is "the provision of financing to investments taking into consideration Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) considerations."
It is not merely a regulatory requirement but rather an increasingly demand-driven business opportunity. Risk is also a common driver that pushes financial institutions to invest responsibly, alongside other factors such as market trends and the willingness to create new fields of income.
