At GTR‘s Asia Trade and Treasury Week in Singapore, experts discussed the progress made in the sustainable financing of soft commodities. Progress has been slow, with cost proving to be an issue, but few of those in attendance were aware of the financing tools available to them. For those that were, the tools often seemed out of date. The conclusion of many was that in this age of information, there is no longer any excuse for banks to fund unsustainably sourced commodities.
