Our approach

At Bank of Singapore, we integrate environmental, social and governance (ESG) analysis into our approach and evaluation of investment opportunities.

Looking through an ESG lens is one of the strongest ways to help determine the viability of long-term returns of an investment.

We take a forward-looking and transition-based approach that takes not just the current and past ESG profile of an investment opportunity, but our assessment of its future trajectory.
