The COVID-19 pandemic is refocussing sustainable finance to include social SDGs, argues Constance Chalchat, BNP Paribas CIB's head of company engagement.


Constance Chalchat talks to leading sustainability publication Business Green about her thoughts on how the coronavirus is putting social Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at the centre of the sustainable finance roadmap.

Her article argues that the fallout from Covid-19 requires investment and immediate response mechanisms to support society. Ultimately, a broader focus of sustainable finance is needed to foster sustainable business models that incorporate both environmental and social elements, including to a stronger focus on local close-sourcing and circular economy.
