About UNEP FI 

The UNEP FI (United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative) international initiative encompasses banks, insurance companies and investors. Its purpose is to promote and accelerate sustainable development.  

We have been a member of the initiative since 2004 and actively participate in the global effort to create a sustainable future for the economy and the planet. 

The 6 Principles for Responsible Banking 

The UNEP FI Principles for Responsible Banking (PRB) provide a framework that ensures a global transition towards sustainable financing. Through the Principles, banks align their decision-making strategy in terms of financing and investments with the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement on climate change. 

We signed the 6 PRBs in 2019, as part of our commitment to create a sustainable banking system. 

We have been publishing an annual self-assessment report on our progress in adopting these principles.

We directly contribute to achieving 10 of the SDGs through the activities we launch or plan for the future: 

Sustainable Development Goals

When mapping our contribution, we took into account both the positive and the negative impact of our value chain. We indirectly contribute to promoting all the SDGs, as all 17 are interconnected and impact one another.
