The future of a sustainable world economy depends on mitigating ethical, social and environmental risks to trade. Commerzbank, having produced a major new report in March 2015 that identified the drivers of sustainable trade, has followed up with a second report on the subject this year. Titled Insights: Scenarios for the Future of Sustainable Trade, the new report projects the course of sustainability in trade over the coming decades.
Commerzbank’s Ruediger Geis, Head of Product Management, Trade Services and Christoph Ott, Senior Specialist for the bank’s Corporate Responsibility division, along with Mark Elsner, Senior Adviser at the report’s partner Oxford Analytica, met with key journalists working in the trade and economic sustainability fields. At the briefing in London, organised by Moorgate, the authors explained the report’s key findings, as well as the bank’s strategy and goals for sustainability in trade.
Following the briefing, Moorgate secured targeted coverage of the report in the specialist sustainability and trade press, including Environmental Finance (behind paywall), Trade and Forfaiting Review, Global Trade Review and Trade & Export Finance.
