The ESRM team works with the RM and the customer to share industry best practices and Wells Fargo expectations and to understand the customer’s approach to and capacity for managing the identified environmental and/or social risk. We openly discuss identified risk with experts throughout the organization, and we escalate decision-making to the highest levels of the company when environmental, social, or reputation risk is identified as high." "Our ESRM due diligence reviews are conducted by our ESRM team in tandem with traditional due diligence. The ESRM team operates independently from our lines of business and has particular expertise in assessing environmental and social risk."
