<Back to the Principles for Responsible Banking pages

The Principles for Responsible Banking were developed by 30 Founding Banks on behalf of the whole UNEP FI membership. The draft Principles formed the basis of a six-month global public consultation. All banks were encouraged to take part. Other financial institutions and interested parties were also given the opportunity to contribute. More than 500 people took part.

Thank you for participating in the consultation process. The comments received, along with the responses and relevant changes made to the Principles based on these, are summarized here by key topic. We furthermore received numerous suggestions for frameworks, tools and resources to be included in the guidance document, as well as requests for more guidance in certain areas. We will consider these as we further develop the document.
