How can a bank score clients on their sustainability performance, and engage clients in a strategic conversation about sustainability? We supported ABN AMRO with the design and implementation of the ‘Client Assessment on Sustainability’ or CASY, a tool to measure the sustainability performance of their corporate clients. CASY focuses on issues such as materials used, waste and certification, and the results are compared with those of other businesses in the same sector. CASY also offers insight into market trends and innovations which the client can use to take action. The Financieele Dagblad recently reported on the financial sector’s initiative to meet the Paris Agreement, citing the CASY tool as a concrete example. The FD article can be accessed here, more info on CASY can be accessed here.
