The Alliance is governed by a 12-member-strong Steering Group and Chair to oversee decision-making and strategy. The Steering Group was selected by member banks, and represents a diversity of geography and business models.
The Group meets at both the ‘Principal’ level, with C-suite delegates ensuring that the strategy is embedded at the heart of organisations, and at the ‘Representative’ level, with working-level delegates tackling the on-the-ground practicalities of delivering on the commitment. The Alliance is supported and convened by the UNEP FI Secretariat, and the United Nations also holds a seat on the Steering Group. Please find below a list of members and representatives, appointed in July 2021.
