Join in Shaping the Principles for Responsible Banking

The development of the Principles for Responsible Banking has been led by your UNEP FI peer banks on behalf and in consultation with all UNEP FI member banks. They serve as the framework for today’s new banking industry that supports society in achieving a more sustainable world.

All banks, as well as other financial institutions and interested parties, are encouraged to take part in the consultative process running through 31 May 2019.

It is very important that all banks provide feedback in shaping the Principles, so that the implementation and impacts of these may be maximized.

There are several way to engage in the Consultative Process:

1. Provide feedback through the online feedback survey

A summary of feedback received through March 2019, and responses to these, is now available here.

2. Participate in the information webinar series

Every six weeks, UNEP FI together with the Principle’s founding banks host informative webinars to present and explain the Principles, their target-setting and their accountability requirements. This is also an opportunity to gather your valuable feedback towards the shaping of the Principles.
