FEBRABAN- Brazilian Federation of Banks is a signatory entity of the Principles for Responsible Banking of UNEP-FI, a financial initiative of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP-FI).
The Principles are a set of six harmonizing and guiding guidelines for financial institutions around the world to incorporate sustainability in all areas of their business, setting standards for understanding environmental, social and governance aspects, aligning them with the importance of economic and financial aspects in the activities and businesses of banks. Additionally, it also reiterates the responsibility of the banking sector in aligning its business with the Paris Climate Agreement and the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
