The Principles for Responsible Banking have been developed by the banking industry through banking sector members of the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) Finance Initiative. The Principles will provide the first-ever global framework for a bank to align its business strategy with the SDGs and the Paris Agreement on climate change, thus remaining competitive in today’s market and into the future.
The launch event is expected to include the participation of the UN Secretary-General, Heads of State and Government, the newly appointed UNEP Executive Director, and more than 30 CEOs representing leading banks around the world.
