Sustainable Finance

The global financial system is a key factor in driving global sustainability. It has the ability to change markets and contribute to global sustainability through its choice of financing activities. It can therefore help drive the Paris Agreement, and the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda – including the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – forward.

Social and environmental factors are increasingly central in financial institutions’ strategic approaches, as sustainable finance has been going mainstream. At TBH, we have in-house expertise in this domain. By investing in a sustainable manner, investors may be able to enjoy positive financial returns while simultaneously contributing to a more sustainable economy.

Switzerland places great importance on sustainable finance. As such, in September 2018, the Swiss Bankers Association (SBA) has made sustainable finance one of its strategic priorities.

Following the SBA’s definition, we perceive sustainable finance as including the financial services that integrate environmental, social, and governance (ESG) criteria into decision making, taking into account sustainable benefits as they pertain to clients and society as a whole.

At TBH, we believe in the importance of sustainable finance, and have therefore made it an integral part of our philosophy.
