Convocação para se juntar ao Civil Society Advisory Body para os Princípios para Responsabilidade Bancária

A Iniciativa Financeira da Organização das Nações Unidas para o Meio Ambiente (UNEP FI) fez uma convocação pública para as instituições da sociedade civil de todo mundo declararem seus interesses em se juntar ao Civil Society Advisory Body (Órgão Consultivo da Sociedade Civil, em inglês) até o dia 15 de dezembro de 2020.

O órgão – designado para garantir que os Princípios para Responsabilidade Bancária permaneçam relevantes e que os signatários tenham responsabilidade para com a sociedade civil – é o único exemplo de uma iniciativa financeira sustentável com uma contribuição tão significante para a sociedade

Principles for Responsible Banking is first finance sector initiative to put into practice signatories’ commitments to robust accountability and broad engagement with establishment of Civil Society Advisory Body

Signatories to the Principles for Responsible Banking commit to proactively consult with their stakeholders and to be transparent about and accountable for their positive and negative impacts and their contribution to society’s goals (under Principles 4 and 6). Civil society organisations will play a key role in holding the community of signatory banks accountable and ensure that they deliver on their commitments with ambition and transparency.

To ensure this input, signatories have taken a step that no other sustainable finance framework has taken to date and voted to establish a Civil Society Advisory Body. UNEP FI has now issued a public call to civil society institutions around the world to declare their interest in joining the body.

With over 190 Signatories, the Principles for Responsible Banking are now being implemented by over 40% of the global banking sector, leading to a future in which the banking community makes the kind of positive contribution to people and the planet that society expects. The Civil Society Advisory Body is a unique opportunity for member organisations to engage the collective signatory banks and steer the conversation around responsible banking.

“We know that with the challenges we face today, collaboration is essential. Having seen the value of engaging directly with civil society groups in the development of the Principles, we’re now proud to take the step to establish a formal Civil Society Advisory Body, supporting constructive dialogue between banks and civil society, with a shared goal of better sustainability performance,” said Siobhan Toohill, Group Head of Sustainability, Westpac Group, Australia and co-Chair of UNEP FI’s Banking Committee.

The new body will help monitor collective progress, engaging with and advising the newly-formed Banking Board on strategic matters, help maintain the relevance of the framework, and keep it in step with evolving global sustainability objectives. It will comprise twelve organizations from each region with expertise in the most relevant social and environmental issues.

One of its key roles will be to monitor and provide an independent viewpoint on the collective progress of signatories to the Principles for Responsible Banking. The body’s independent assessment will be published as part of UNEP FI’s biennial Collective Progress Report on the Principles.

Membership is on an institutional, not personal basis and the positions are available for a two-year term from March 2021 to February 2023. Full details of the organisations we are looking for, details on time commitments and other expectations are available hereApplications close on 15 December, 2020.
