Fifth Third Bank’s Director of Climate and Reputation Risk Kevin Quatman spoke last week at Ceres Global, which was held in New York from March 22-24. Quatman spoke alongside other banking influencers on how Fifth Third Bank engages customers on their climate transitions.
Billed as the event “where capital market leaders come together to create a more just and sustainable world,” Ceres Global brought together “influential institutional investors, C-suite executives, national policymakers, and thought leaders to highlight the innovative solutions and leading global initiatives paving the way for a more just and sustainable economy.”
Quatman presented in the “Bank Client Engagement: Views from Banks and Borrowers” session alongside Richa Agarwal, manager, banks, company network at Ceres; Blair Bateson, director, company network, Ceres; and Andrew R. Karb, global head of sustainable banking solutions, Bank of America.
The session focused on how banks are enhancing their engagement with clients for the transition to a sustainable future. The speakers discussed what client engagement for banks is like and what strategic collaborations can be initiated.
“Fifth Third is a firm believer in the value of engaging with our clients,” said Quatman. “All of us share a mutual appreciation for the ongoing sustainability of our planet. We are working to be a valuable resource to our commercial clients as they execute their own transition plans.”
