Thailandâ€™s Commercial Banksâ€™ Role in Financing Dams in Laos and the Case for Sustainable Banking
AbstractThis paper puts forward the case for Thailandâ€™s commercial banks to move towards more sustainable banking practices that proactively contribute towards socially and environmentally sustainable and just societies. It argues that such reforms would also benefit the banks themselves by ensuring that social and environmental investment risks are quantified and therefore minimized, whilst at the same time opening the door to previously unidentified â€œgreenâ€ investment opportunities.
