UNEP FI’s work on pollution and circular economy will feed into our existing frameworks, in particular the Principles for Responsible Banking and the Principles for Sustainable Insurance, and will support our members in their implementation. Below are the current opportunities available to UNEP FI members to get involved:   

Banks and insurers: Join the Finance Leadership Group on Plastics

This new group of around ten banks and insurers will provide input and suggestions to the Intergovernmental Negotiation Committee (INC) on the desired outcomes of the historicinternational legally binding agreement to end plastic pollution endorsed by UN Member States in 2022, and build readiness in the finance sector to act on plastic pollution through awareness raising, capacity building, and target-setting support.

To find out more or join the group, please contact Peggy Lefort. 

Banks: Join the resource efficiency and circular economy task force

Join a new Principles for Responsible Banking (PRB) task force to contribute to the development of a guide defining and operationalising the link between resource efficiency and circular economy target setting and target setting on climate mitigation and/or on biodiversity.

If you are interested in receiving support setting targets in this area or join the task force, please contact Peggy Lefort.
