Sustainable banking: A roadmap to sustainable development

Deepika Saxena, Neelam Dhall, Rashika Malik

Abstract: Sustainability is not a mere buzzword in the banking industry now but rather a key concept that will shape the direction of the industry in the years to come (World Finance, 2019). Thus, the study aims to ascertain various sustainable banking practices at a domestic and global levels. It also intends to identify the existing framework developed for assessing the performance of sustainable banking practices. The study makes use of exploratory and descriptive research design and is based on primary (in-depth interviews) and secondary sources of data collection. The dimensions of sustainable banking have been identified as environmental, social and governance (ESG). The research further highlights that sustainability issues focused by banks primarily involve “environmental” and “social” considerations, however, the “governance” aspect has not yet been considered by many. Moreover, the study reveals that there are no guidelines specified by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) for sustainable banking practices in India to date. The insights gained from the study would enrich the existing literature on sustainable banking. The findings would also help in developing a new framework for assessing the performance of sustainable banking practices.
