MACS understands “sustainable finance” as the integration of environmental, social and climate criteria into the business models of Financial Institutions. With the Paris Climate Accord, the financial sector has been recognized as a key player for the alignment of investment strategies with the agreed upon mitigation goals. Financial Institutions can leverage their capital to influence sustainable outcomes by reconciling economic performance with positive social and environmental impact. Since then, more and more FIs are evaluating internal policies and looking for ways on how to align their business policies accordingly. MACS, with its focus on the interface of finance, engineering and climate, is in a unique position to support FIs in this respect, as MACS` engineers "speak banking”.
