Podcast | Sustainable Finance

With the dominance of ESG as a key agenda item in the boardroom and C-suite, it’s no surprise that one especially noteworthy topic is sustainable finance – ensuring that investments in products and services are aligned with ESG and sustainability standards. This certainly is a key area of focus in financial services.

In this podcast, Protiviti’s Paul Middleton interviews Ana Carolina Oliveira, Head of Sustainable Finance in the Americas for ING. In their conversation, Ana Carolina and Paul discuss the world of sustainable finance, from current market interest to pervasive challenges and key learnings and takeaways for board members.

Ana Carolina started her career with ING in 2008 as client and policy advisor on Environmental and Social Risk and Sustainability. After working in credit risk and with ING’s healthcare clients, she was appointed to lead the America’s Sustainable Finance group in April 2020, where she is responsible for pitching and structuring sustainable finance products to support clients as they transition to more sustainable businesses. She is also responsible for steering the Americas portfolio in line with the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement, through helping clients set climate targets and supporting their transition to low-carbon operations.
