Zenus Bank has become an official Signatory of the UN Principles for Responsible Banking – the leading framework for a sustainable banking industry, developed through an innovative partnership between banks worldwide and United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative.
Sustainability is a fundamental principle for Zenus Bank. In enabling a large demographic of individuals and corporates around the world to access more modern and transparent banking services, Zenus gives them the ability to compete on a level playing field, build small businesses and create wealth. Zenus is 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 said: “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.”
The Principles for Responsible Banking set out the banking industry’s role and responsibility in shaping a sustainable future and in aligning the banking sector with the objectives of the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement. They also, importantly, enable a bank to embed sustainability across all its business areas, and to identify where it has the potential to make the most impact in its contributions to a sustainable world. They also enable a bank to take concrete action in addressing sustainability, so it can position itself to leverage new business opportunities with the emergence of the sustainable development economy.
