Video – Christina Figueres explains the importance of the UN’s Responsible Banking Principles

The Principles for Responsible Banking are a unique framework for ensuring that signatory banks’ strategy and practice align with the vision society has set out for its future in the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Climate Agreement.

In the Principles signatories commit to strategically align their business with the goals of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change and the UN Sustainable Development Goals

More than 185 banks have now joined this movement for change, leading the way towards a future in which the banking community makes the kind of positive contribution to people and the planet that society expects.

These banks represent more than a third of the global banking industry. This is a journey of unprecedented scale and scope at a time when such ambition is urgently needed.

Paying.Green aligns banks with the UNEP FI’s Responsible Banking Principles and Climate Action by offsetting their customers’ carbon footprint at cost neutrality to the banks and at no extra costs to their customers.

This is achieved under the UNs Framework Convention on Climate Change, UNFCCC, and in observation of the Paris Climate Agreement and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals
