UNEP-FI Principles for Responsible Banking Service

In light of the climate change risks & ESG material issues, the banking sector needs to define and affirm its role in shaping and financing a sustainable future.

The Principles for Responsible Banking (PRB) provide the much-needed framework for the sustainable banking system of the future and helps the banking industry to demonstrate how it makes a positive contribution to society.

They embed sustainability at the strategic, portfolio, and transactional levels, and across all business areas.
