ESG is moving from the periphery to the mainstream, transforming the capital and finance market. In 2021 alone, funds invested in sustainable and ESG-oriented funds increased globally by 53 per cent to US$2.7 trillion.

Driven by the EU Green Deal and EU climate policy, Europe is leading the global transformation in the capital and finance market. Increasingly, institutional investors are reaffirming their desire to integrate corporate ESG performance into their investment decisions. Many companies want to take advantage of this momentum to finance themselves sustainably. At the same time, they are not familiar with ESG-specific requirements and market standards.

KPMG experts provide advice at this interface and ensure a tailor-made ESG financing solution in the client's interest.
