Today, UNEP FI (The United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative) announced the second Round of endorsers of the Principles for Responsible Banking.
The Principles provide guidance for banks to create value for their customers, shareholders and society. The Principles align banks with society’s goals as expressed in the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Climate Agreement.
They are the first global framework to enable banks to integrate sustainability across all business areas, from strategic, to portfolio, to transaction level.
The transparency and accountability mechanism of the Principles requires signatories to address their most significant impacts, set public targets and report back on progress.
- Clients and Customers
- Governance and Target Setting
- Transparency and Accountability
