We’re proud to announce we’ve become an official Signatory of the UN Principles for Responsible Banking – the leading framework for a sustainable banking industry.
Sustainability is a fundamental principle in our business. In enabling a large demographic of individuals and companies around the world to access more modern and transparent banking services, we give our clients the ability to compete on a level playing field, build small businesses and create wealth.
With this we’re committed to helping create a financial services sector that serves not only the needs of the world today but improves people’s quality of life without compromising that of future generations.
José A Díaz-Ortiz, Chief Executive Officer Zenus Bank
“We are very proud to commit to the UNEP FI Principles for Responsible Banking. Zenus is built on addressing global social & financial inclusion in an ethical and sustainable manner. Our declaration to the Principles for Responsible Banking is yet another milestone in our efforts to raise the standards of banking for all.”
Developed through an innovative partnership between banks worldwide and the United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative; the Principles for Responsible Banking set out the banking industry’s role and responsibility in shaping a sustainable future and aligning the banking sector with the objectives of the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement.
We’re using the principles to embed sustainability across all our business areas and will focus our efforts on impacting financial inclusion and gender equality.
