New ESG Regulatory Challenges for Financial Institutions
AML, KYC, CFT… and now ESG? When it comes to effective financial crime compliance programs, environmental, social and governance criteria (ESG) is not just another in the seemingly endless number of acronyms.
While the connections may not always seem obvious, institutions globally are taking a hard look at how financial crime programs connect to and support wider sustainability goals.
In this session, an expert with Thomsom Reuters Regulatory Intelligence, Henry Engler, explores findings on the links between ESG drawn from a comprehensive report. Joined by moderator and compliance expert Gina Jurva, they describe the elements of ESG and how they connect to fincrime typologies like environmental crimes, corruption and human trafficking. They also provide guidance on how compliance programs can potentially benefit, in stature and resources, from being viewed as a societal benefit.
