Regulators and investors are demanding greater disclosure on ESG performance of financial services companies, thus prompting financial intermediaries to integrate ESG across their organizations to achieve higher (sustainability) performance and to address the new risks arising from the climate change and overall business sustainability.

While implementing ESG metrics across functions and processes, financial intermediaries are committed to achieving adequate practice in sustainability, social responsibility and governance by rearranging strategies and processes to meet ESG objectives.

Together with ESG standards and sustainability issues, FinTech solutions are impacting many elements of the financial sector value chain, remodeling products and processes for both consumers and financial services providers. Also, FinTech solutions can support the ESGfocused transformation by enhancing ESG reporting, investment processes, supply chain management and business sustainability.

This 4th International Conference CGRM 2023 will provide a platform for academics and practitioners from different countries to analyze recent trends and upcoming challenges in corporate governance and risk management in financial institutions with a particular focus on environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks and opportunities, as well as on the impact of emerging technologies in financial sector.


The Scientific Committee encourages the widest possible participation of academics and practitioners, whose useful contributions might inspire discussions, comparisons and assessments of the overall state of research in the field of corporate governance and risk management in financial institutions.

Topics include, but are not restricted to:

  • Climate-related risks and business sustainability in financial sector;
  • Emerging risks assessment and management;
  • Corporate governance and strategies in financial institutions;
  • Environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance;
  • Environmental disclosure and sustainability reporting;
  • Financial regulation and ESG;
