Join the conversation about the Principles

We are consulting on the Principles for Responsible Banking until 31 May 2019 and encourage all banks, other financial institutions and interested parties to have your say on the Principles and Implementation Guidance.

The development of the Principles to date has already involved civil society organizations and UNEP FI member banks, investors and insurers. Now it is important we widen this engagement and give others the opportunity to contribute. There are several ways you can get involved.
