About the Principles for Responsible Banking

The Principles for Responsible Banking provide the framework for a sustainable banking system in which a bank’s business strategy is aligned with society’s goals, and guide banks in demonstrating how they are making a positive contribution to society – an increasing expectation of their customers, clients, employees and investors, as well as society-at-large.
