DBS empowers workforce with sustainable financing skills

The initiative aligns with the bank’s commitment to responsible banking and social progress. It aims to equip employees with the necessary skills to navigate the evolving financial landscape.

DBS recognizes the rapidly changing dynamics in the financial sector, driven by the increasing importance of sustainable practices and transitioning to a low-carbon economy. To stay ahead in this competitive market, the bank has invested significantly in reskilling and upskilling its workforce, ensuring that its employees possess the expertise required to cater to the emerging demands of clients and investors.

According to Yulanda Chung, Head of Sustainability, Institutional Banking Group, “Our ability to reduce our financed emissions is integrally tied to the success of our clients’ own decarbonisation efforts, and we are committed to helping them on this process. Our RMs play a crucial role as catalysts in supporting our clients on their sustainability journeys.”

“That is why we have invested in curating tailored workshops that go beyond the bank’s foundational sustainability curriculum so as to equip our RMs with the right tools to partner our corporate clients effectively on their decarbonisation efforts,” she said.

As part of the program, DBS provided comprehensive training and development opportunities across various domains, including sustainable financing, environmental risk management, and renewable energy investment. Employees were encouraged to deepen their knowledge in these areas to better serve the bank’s clients looking to integrate environmental, social, and governance (ESG) considerations into their financial decisions.

DBS’s commitment to upskilling and reskilling its employees reflects its dedication to corporate social responsibility. The bank understands that investing in the professional development of its workforce is a key factor in maintaining a competitive edge while simultaneously contributing to a more equitable and sustainable world.
