Financial institutions contribute to environmental protection


The United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI) is a unique global partnership between the UNEP and the private financial sector. UNEP FI works closely with over 160 financial institutions who are signatories to the UNEP FI Statements, and a range of partners organizations to develop and promote linkages between the environment, sustainability and financial performance.

Through regional activities, a comprehensive work programme, training programmes and research, UNEP FI carries out its mission to identify, promote, and realise the adoption of best environmental and sustainability practice at all levels of financial institution operations.

UNEP FI provides quality support for organisations. In addition to our dedicated team, UNEP FI opens up a vast network of sustainable development contacts, information and networking services that are dedicated to helping organisations make a difference.
