The themes within our Green and Sustainable Product Framework include; COVID healthcare, sanitation, food security along with others such as renewable energy, energy efficiency, access to water and water management, sustainable infrastructure, climate change adaptation, access to finance, healthcare, education and partnerships.

In COVID healthcare, we look at financing to equip, operate and add capacity and efficiency to essential healthcare facilities.

Under renewal energy and energy generation from renewable sources, we would look to finance the generation of electricity from wind, solar, hydropower, waste to energy and geothermal.

Around the theme of education, eligible financing activities include construction of public schools and universities, the construction of student housing and training for educational professionals.

We have mapped our existing business against the SDGs to create a Green and Sustainable Product Framework that details what we as an organisation view as sustainable activities that we finance. The framework has received industry accreditation from Sustainalytics.

This framework will be reviewed independently every year to ensure that the latest developments and trends are regularly incorporated. This framework sets the basis for future sustainable products to help fund the SDGs across the Bank’s footprint markets, especially in developing markets.
