Green at heart - Islamic Finance & ESG
There are many parallels between ESG values and those of Islamic finance. Both address social and environmental factors. Sharia compliant finance aligns with the environmental and social aspect of ESG, as both look to avoid financing projects or developments that could be harmful to the environment or the general well-being of people.
Conventional financial institutions looking to refine and expand their ESG proposition and promote sustainability could also explore Islamic finance opportunities as they are so well intertwined.
It is easy to see why Islamic finance and ESG are often seen as sharing a common domain, however, there are some inherent differences which exist in processes, rather than in fundamental principles, which finance professionals need to understand before they can construct a common ESG/Islamic finance investment proposition.
