Our sustainable finance tools and training services are part of our effort to fulfil the mission of UNEP FI to “identify, promote, and realise the adoption of best environmental and sustainability practice at all levels of financial institution operations”.

These services aim to raise awareness and to build capacity in sustainable finance amongst UNEP FI Signatories and other financial institutions, as well as relevant stakeholders in governments, NGOs and academia, especially in developing countries and emerging markets.

UNEP FI Training Programs

UNEP FI has a range of training offerings, both online and in a workshop format, covering the following themes:

Principles for Responsible Banking

The Principles for Responsible Banking provide the framework for a sustainable banking system, and help the industry to demonstrate how it makes a positive contribution to society. They are accelerating the banking industry’s contribution to achieving society’s goals as expressed in the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Climate Agreement.

Recommendations of the FSB’s Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD)

UNEP FI, together with 16 of the world’s leading banks, set out on a year-long project to pioneer and further develop transition and physical assessment models and metrics to enable scenario-based, forward-looking assessment and disclosure of climate-related risks and opportunities.

The contributions of the pilot have better equipped participating banks and the banking industry at large to implement the recommendations of the Financial Stability Board’s Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).
