Financial Services

Financial services companies play a unique role in corporate responsibility and sustainability: They must address their own corporate responsibility, and they must invest in and serve clients in ways that promote sustainable, ethical, and responsible growth across the entire economy.

How We Work

BSR members include the majority of the world’s largest financial services companies. We support them in addressing core corporate responsibility topics and sector-specific issues, and connecting environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues affecting other sectors to financial services companies.

Our Focus

  • Corporate ESG integration
  • Disclosure and transparency
  • Responsible investing
  • Financial education, literacy, and access
  • Governance and ethics
  • Sustainable supply chain
