A Turning Point for Treasury
For environmental, social and governance (ESG) initiatives to become part of the day-to-day activities of the business community, it will take continued strong leadership and guidance. In the final instalment of this three-part series, Bank of America experts use real-world examples to explore the future of sustainable practice, offering insights into how treasury professionals can drive change for good.

Indeed, a recent report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) flagged how extraordinary efforts are now required to help to stabilise the planet.
Against this backdrop, Melissa Moi, Head of Asia Pacific Environment, Social, Governance, Bank of America, believes we will see ESG “continue to grow in terms of relevance from a business strategy perspective and from a treasury perspective in the months and years ahead”. But how can treasurers prepare – especially when faced with a period of significant global uncertainty?
