The overarching objective of this project is to generate an improved understanding of the role of different types of financial service providers (FSPs), such as private banks, public banks, institutional investors, and multilateral development banks in augmenting corporate social and environmental performance in tropical commodities such as timber, rubber and other crops.

By unpacking the (responsible) finance decision-making processes applied by different types of FSPs and for different types of financial instruments, the project will highlight key FSP environmental, social and governance (ESG) integration gaps and challenges.

This knowledge will enable both state and non-state actors to more constructively engage with financial service sector ESG integration issues and encourage FSPs to explore new opportunities to improve their engagement with commodity supply chain actors around ESG issues.
