All banks are encouraged to use the guidance documents for best-practice on key topics. Working groups of signatory banks worldwide have contributed to – or are actively engaged in – creating this guidance, working with experts in the field. Discover what leadership looks like by using the easy-to-use guides below:
 

Guidance on Biodiversity Target-setting

The Guidance on Biodiversity Target Setting is designed for PRB signatories, allowing banks to take a systematic approach to setting and achieving biodiversity targets. The guidance presents three real-life case studies, and includes a detailed how-to guide and has been developed by 30 PRB signatories, UNEP FI, UNEP-WCMC and the Science-based Targets Network (SBTN). 

Guidelines for Climate Target Setting for Banks

The Guidelines for Climate Target Setting for Banks outline key principles to underpin the setting of credible, robust, impactful and ambitious targets in line with achieving the objectives of the Paris Agreement.

Guidance on Gender Equality Target Setting

The Guidance on Gender Equality Target Setting delivers a practical example of what a gender equality target can look like, providing guidance on the different elements of setting targets in line with the requirements of the PRB, and what alignment with international and national frameworks can look like.

Guidance on Reporting and Providing Limited Assurance

The Reporting Guidance supports signatories of the PRB with reporting on their implementation of the Principles. The Guidance for Assurance Providers: Providing Limited Assurance for Reporting aims at assisting assurance providers with undertaking limited assurance on PRB reporting, and at harmonizing the assurance approach and procedures for signatory banks.

Guidance on Impact Analysis

The Guidance Document on Impact Analysis provides more detailed explanations of the requirements for conducting an impact analysis, what data is required, who in your bank you should reach out to, and examples of the external stakeholders your bank could engage with.
