Zoom in ESG


ICBC (Europe) S.A. (“the Bank”) has continually strived to integrate ESG as an integral part of the governance structure and taken steps to show that we, as an organisation operating in and influencing the economy and stakeholders in society and nature, are taking climate change seriously. The significance of climate change and environmental degradation cannot be understated, and therefore we are placing sustainability as a pivotal part of what the Bank does. We are developing new ESG risk measurement frameworks, and working diligently to integrate ESG risk considerations in existing macroprudential risk categories. 

We recognise that being a sustainable bank operating and doing business in Europe, necessitates that we integrate sustainability and ESG in our own operations, our financing and loan activities, and the services and products we offer to clients and the economy. This in turn has led the Bank to strive for increased and sustained activity within the fields of climate change mitigation, climate change adaptation, climate and environmental risk, human rights, financial health, business ethics, biodiversity protection, remediation and preservation as well as other ESG issues in scope.
