Partnership between United Nations Environment and the global financial sector to promote sustainable finance
Principles for Responsible Banking
The Principles for Responsible Banking are a unique framework for ensuring that signatory banks’ strategy and practice align with the vision society has set out for its future in the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Climate Agreement.
Over 250 banks representing over 40% of banking assets worldwide have now joined this movement for change, leading the way towards a future in which the banking community makes the kind of positive contribution to people and the planet that society expects. This is a journey of unprecedented scale and scope at a time when such ambition is urgently needed.
