Our main impact on the environment and society is through the business activities we finance. To achieve long-term sustainable development, we must responsibly manage environmental and social risks.
How we manage environmental and social risks
Our approach is to engage proactively with clients, governments, non-governmental organisations and communities to mitigate the impact that stems from our financing decisions. Our Position Statements outline the standards we encourage or expect our clients to align to, and reference appropriate industry-wide benchmarks such as the International Finance Corporation and the Equator Principles. We apply these through our policies and procedures.
We work in partnership with our clients to manage environmental and social risks. In doing so, we believe that we create a competitive advantage for our clients, strengthen and develop long-term relationships, and contribute to sustainable economic growth in our communities.
