Core Activities

UNEP FI's strategic work programme is focused on current and emergent issues which are relevant to our signatories. We work collaboratively to find innovative approaches to issues around finance and sustainability.

Other Activities

  • Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services - Assisting the financial services sector to address the challenges arising from the loss of biodiversity and the degradation of ecosystem services.
  • Finance and Conflict - Developing and promoting the business case for conflict prevention within the financial sector and raising awareness of the opportunities of engaging proactively with the issue of conflict prevention.
  • Human Rights and Finance - driving socially and environmentally sustainable development by seeking to understand and clarify how human rights relate to the activities of financial institutions worldwide, so financial professionals can make responsible decisions within their spheres of influence.
  • Water and Finance - Promoting a proactive approach by financial institutions when it comes to water-related challenges and opportunities through awareness raising and capacity building.
