The Net-Zero Banking Alliance maintains a number of strong connections with partners with common interests. Read more about our collaborating partners, country chapters and supporting institutions below.

Collaborating Partners

The Alliance and its collaborating partners work in concert to harmonise, develop, and implement net-zero approaches, as well as mutually promote the work of both organisations. They have in common a shared ambition for excellence in the pursuit of common goals.

Each collaborator relationship is unique, and may include consultations, adoption of one another’s past or future approaches, collaboration on overlapping tasks, or other forms of mutually agreed-upon partnership. This is outlined in a document of common understanding. Collaborating partners may be proposed by the Secretariat or Alliance members and must be approved by the Steering Group.

Center for Climate-Aligned Finance

The Center for Climate-Aligned Finance was established by RMI to help the financial sector transition the global economy toward a zero-carbon, 1.5°C future. With deep partnerships in finance, industry, government, and civil society, the Center works to develop decarbonization agreements within high-emitting sectors, build global frameworks for climate alignment, and support financial institutions in decarbonizing their lending and investing portfolios. Launched in 2020, the Center builds on RMI’s nearly 40 years of experience developing market-based solutions to accelerate the energy transition.

Country Chapters

Country Chapters support the implementation of Alliance’s global goals at a local level. With a large and growing geographically diverse community of banks joining the Alliance, the Secretariat recognizes the need for region-specific fora that will support implementation within the context of the national/regional economy and policy environment. Peer learning among banks will catalyze members’ net-zero journeys, in addition to participation in the Alliance’s global working groups.

UK Bankers for Net Zero

The UK Chapter of the Alliance is convened by UK Bankers for Net Zero. It is an initiative which aims to enable banks to successfully support their clients, accelerate the transition to net zero and deliver on the UK government’s ambitions for addressing climate change.

Supporting Institutions

Supporting institutions are non-for-profit organisations that carry out activities relevant to the banking industry. Supporters have a mission which is aligned with net-zero by 2050 or other low-carbon objectives and have confirmed in writing their support for the Alliance. Supporters are encouraged to carry out at least one activity each year that would support the adoption and implementation of the NZBA commitment. If your organisation would like to become a supporter, please contact us.

European Banking Federation

The European Banking Federation is the voice of the European banking sector, bringing together national banking associations from across Europe. The EBF is committed to a thriving European economy that is underpinned by a stable, secure and inclusive financial ecosystem, and to a flourishing society where financing is available to fund the dreams of citizens, businesses and innovators everywhere.
