UN Environment’s Latin America and Caribbean Division is proud to announce that the Association of Mexican Banks (ABM) has joined the UN Environment Finance Initiative as a Supporting Institution – the first Latin American banking association to do so. Recently, ABM has played an exemplary role in leading and encouraging its members to engage on sustainability issues, as well as placing sustainable finance on the stakeholder agenda. The Association will act as a leader of sustainability practices in the banking sector in Mexico and will be an example to the region as a whole. It comprises some 50 institutions with whom it works towards developing and strengthening the Mexican banking sector. It also represents the interests of institutions that are looking to advance technically specialized services, information, and leadership exchanges.
