As the sustainability conversation gains in popularity across the globe, every part of a corporation – including treasury – is now expected to contribute to and help advance the organisation’s overall corporate social responsibility (CSR) strategy.
78% of the world's top companies now include corporate responsibility information in their annual financial reports - and 43% have already connected their corporate responsibility reporting to the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

A partnership between Etihad Airways, First Abu Dhabi Bank and Abu Dhabi Global Market has delivered a host of social, environmental, and financial sustainability benefits for the airline, highlighting the UAE's expertise as a hub for sustainable financing.
