The Banking Scene Afterwork

Automation for Good: Automation as an enabler for ESG and Sustainability in Banks

Automation for Good: Automation as an enabler for ESG and Sustainability in Banks

Special edition, including thought leader like Chris Skinner, Author and Commentator, The Finanser and Nitin Purwar, Director Banking Industry Practice at UiPath.

EGS and sustainability are on top of every bank's strategy. To comply with the multitude of new regulations, banks must ensure the right level of data integrity and efficient reporting processes. The continuous change in regulations requires a lot of flexibility and agility.

The faster banks can implement the efforts to a greener future, the sooner they can grasp the opportunities and look further than the traditional reporting and regulations, both from a shareholder, customers and supervisor's perspective.

In this session, we will investigate how automation can help banks in realising their short and long-term commitments to EGS.

No Chatham House rules this time, the session will be shared afterwards.
