Factors Affecting Customers' Use of Online Banking
The online banking is a banking service that allows users to be “at home” and use the service at any time through an internet connection [6]. In online banking services, the restrictions of time and geography have been removed, and customers can access their bank accounts and make transactions at almost anytime and anywhere via computers and an internet gateway. This study aims to determine factors impacting the adoption and use of online banking services in Vietnam. The proposed research model is based on the adjustment of Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT2). We employed the structural equation modeling (SEM) and artificial neural network model (ANN) to comprehensively evaluate the linear and non-linear effects of factors on the adoption and use of online banking services in Vietnam.

Even though ESG information might lack standardisation, scholars argue that it can help adapt to environmental changes and even be a part of a company’s competitive strategy.
