Responsible banking starts with innovating from the bottom of the pyramid, with those most in need of help.

That's the view of Namita Vikas, Responsible Banking & Chief Sustainability Officer at YES Bank in India.

In 2012 Ms Vikas was one of the first to champion what later became the Paris Agreement on climate action.

She talked to Janie Cangelosi at the Paris Agreement signing last week at UN Headquarters.
