Banks worldwide lining up to endorse ‘Principles for Responsible Banking’

Industry News | 22/05/19

The number of banks worldwide endorsing the highly anticipated Principles for Responsible Banking has now jumped to 56, including a spearheading group of 28 ‘Founding Banks’ and a growing list of currently 27 more ‘Endorsing Banks’ representing all five continents.

The Principles for Responsible Banking are set to launch on 22 September 2019 at the United Nations (UN) Headquarters, during the UN General Assembly – the annual meeting of the world’s Heads of State. The Principles have been developed by the banking industry itself, facilitated by the United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI) – a UN-private sector collaboration that includes membership of more than 240 finance institutions around the globe.
