As outlined in the Key Steps to be Implemented by Signatories, conducting an in-depth impact analysis is the starting point for effective implementation of the Principles for Responsible Banking. Through collective leadership, a community of Principles for Responsible Banking Signatories and UNEP FI Member Banks has developed the Portfolio Impact Analysis Tool for Banks and the Guidance on Impact Analysis, which will support and guide banks as they get started with their 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.
