Sustainable finance is defined as investment decisions that take into account the environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors of an economic activity or project. The financial sector holds enormous power in funding and bringing awareness to issues of sustainability –whether by enabling research and development of alternative energy sources, or supporting businesses that follow fair and sustainable labor practices.

If we’re going to solve the world’s environmental and social challenges, sustainability and finance should go hand in hand. Both investment managers and corporates increasingly accept that consideration of ESG factors does not hamper investment returns. On the contrary, it can deliver risk and performance benefits. New frameworks, initiatives and financial products are emerging, with RMB leading the market in innovation and expertise.

We offer products and services that support sustainable development and economic growth such as green and social bonds and loans; sustainability-linked finance; impact investing; ESG reporting and advisory solutions. From meeting the needs of your operation by investing in your own renewable power supply, to ensuring that sustainable practices are embedded in your supply chain, we actively support your transition to new sustainable business models.

New regulations will entrench sustainability for business and finance, which is where the guidance RMB’s cross-functional and market-leading ESG Advisory will prove its worth. Africa’s need for economic and social advancement means that sustainable finance will play an increasingly important role in securing local and international funding for high-impact projects. Partner with us to finance your sustainability commitment, and make a measurable difference.
