The Green & Sustainable Hub team has a global presence:
The team works closely with a network of 100 “Green Captains” coming from all CIB’s businesses and acting as ambassadors for green revenue generation efforts.
“The GSH team was conceived as a dedicated cross-asset task force involving all CIB’s areas of expertise to offer our clients the best funding and investment solutions with a deep green footprint. Our approach is unique on the market and based on strong convictions: one is that green idea is asset-class agnostic, another is a desire for green integrity, whereby the bank practices what it preaches.”
