The future of sustainable finance, Thought Leaders Study by Strandberg Consulting, Canada – May 2005

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is emerging as a significant international business trend, becoming a preoccupation of many business executives worldwide.

In an effort to understand how this trend is playing out in the financial services sector, 10 Canadian financial co-operatives funded a study to assess international best practices, standards and trends in CSR or sustainable finance.

Strandberg Consulting conducted the study, which looked at best practices of 21 financial institutions from the banking, insurance and asset management sectors, and 10 international sustainable finance sets of standards, principles and guidelines. Fifty thought leaders in sustainable finance around the world were also interviewed.
