Kristina Jeromin: “A return to what the financial system is supposed to do”Sustainability – from trend to mainstream

Kristina Jeromin, Head of Group Sustainability, Deutsche Börse

Sustainability criteria are becoming more and more important within the financial sector. However, the topic is not new at all. Since the financial crisis at the latest, it has become clear that focussing solely on the classic key financial figures is not enough. Still, sustainability in the sense of future-proof financing has actually just begun to really get going.

In a recently published interview in EURO FINANCE magazin, Kristina Jeromin, Head of Group Sustainability at Deutsche Börse, talks about sustainability in the sense of “future viability” and its importance for the national and international economic system.

Sustainability initiatives

With the Sustainable Finance Cluster Germany and the Hub for Sustainable Finance Germany, the German financial industry could be consolidated, and the connection between the financial system and policymakers could be strengthened.

For Kristina Jeromin, sustainability is already more than a trend. Now it is a question of how sustainability expertise has to be used in order to ensure a sustainable financial sector.

The full version of the interview can be found below.

The interview was first published on 19 June 2018 in the EURO FINANCE magazin, issue 02.2018.
