We recognize that as a bank with one of the broadest and deepest networks in local markets across the region, we have a unique role to play in the development of ESG frameworks and capabilities here. We are committed to pushing the ESG agenda forward in Asia Pacific, and Kamran’s appointment is but the first step along that path.”
