CSR in the financial sector : Sustainability related difficulties from three financial actors point of view (English)
Abstract [sv]

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) och hållbarhet i finanssektorn har under de senaste åren blivit en mycket omdiskuterad fråga. I denna studie har jag undersökt vilka hållbarhetsrelaterade utmaningar som finns inför framtiden för den svenska finansmarknaden. Genom att titta på de finansiella aktörerna Swedbank, Folksam och Söderberg & Partners verksamheter samt prata med deras respektive hållbarhetschefer har det framkommit flera utmaningar. En av dem är att kunna hantera de risker som en omställning från en icke hållbar verksamhet till en hållbar verksamhet innebär. En annan utmaning är att förstå den effekten ens handlingar leder till i det långa loppet. Genom en granskning av EU-kommissionens rapport och handlingsplan gällande finanssektorns viktiga roll i att klara klimatmålen för år 2030 har det även framkommit fler utmaningar och möjligheter för den finansiella marknaden att utveckla sina verksamheter.Studien visar också att ordet CSR inte används i finansbranschen längre utan att de använder sig av ordet hållbarhet. Endast i ett avseende pratar företagen om CSR och inte hållbarhet. Det är när företagen tänker på filantropiska aktiviteter.

Abstract [en]

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and sustainability in the financial sector has in recent years become a highly discussed issue. In this study I have investigated the sustainability-related challenges facing the future of the Swedish financial market. By looking at the financial actors Swedbank, Folksam and Söderberg & Partners operations as well as talking with their respective sustainability managers, several challenges have been identified. One of them is being able to handle the risks that are involved in a shift from a non-sustainable business into a sustainable business. Another challenge is to understand the effect that one's actions lead to in the long run. A review of the EU Commission's report and action plan on the important role of the financial sector in meeting climate targets by 2030 has also revealed more challenges and opportunities for the financial market to develop its operations.The study also shows that the word CSR is not used in the financial sector anymore. They are using the word sustainability. Only in one perspective, companies talk about CSR and not sustainability. This is when companies talk about their philanthropic activities.
