UNEP FI has launched the UNEP FI-ESRS Interoperability Package which helps banks leverage the close alignment between the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) and the Principles for Responsible Banking (PRB), using the UNEP FI Holistic Impact Methodology. In this webinar, speakers provided an overview and walk-through of the new resources which include a user guide, topic and data point mappings, as well as a conversion tool which will lift relevant datapoints from the UNEP FI Portfolio Impact Analysis Tool for Banks (Version 3) for CSRD reporting.


EU law, through the CSRD, requires companies to disclose information on what they see as the risks and opportunities arising from social and environmental issues, and on the impact of their activities on people and the environment, supported by the European Sustainability Reporting Standards (ESRS). Over 175 European signatories to the PRB are subject to the CSRD; many others, in particular signatories with activities in the EU, will also be subject to it in the future. Requirements of the PRB, supported by the UNEP FI Holistic Impact Methodology, are highly aligned with the requirements of the CSRD, especially the impact materiality assessment and disclosures, which feature centrally within the Directive and supporting Standards. Find out more about this close alignment here.
