Central banks and supervisory authorities are calling for sustainability risks to be taken into
account in banks‘ risk management and in monitoring financial market stability. This means
that banks are required to systematically take ESG (Environment / Social / Governance) risks
into account when aligning their business models in their organizational structures, as well
as continuously recording and managing ESG risks and their effects on capital / earnings and
The new EBA action plan (EBA „Discussion Paper on Management and Supervision of ESG
Risks for Credit Institutions“ January 2021) and the corresponding ECB guidelines („Guide
on climate related and environmental risks“ November 2020) are clear signs that the current
focus of supervision is on managing ESG risks.
