Santander Corporate & Investment Banking has been a leading bank in financing and advising its customers on the deployment of renewable energy. Last summer, it set up a dedicated Environmental Social and Governance (ESG) Solutions team to help its clients in their transformation journey towards a low carbon economy and more sustainable business models.
