The future of banking depends heavily on organizations that prioritize environmental, social, economic, and governance issues; promote financial inclusion, and act with integrity. Beyond these efforts, what more could be done to raise awareness of the UN Principles for Responsible Banking and their implications beyond specialist teams in banks?

"What initiatives are banks, in different regions, implementing to align with themselves UN PRB’s both externally (with customers) and internally (in terms of ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) training of their staff, for instance) to raise their colleagues’ capability?"

"What initiatives are working, the lessons learnt and the challenges faced, and how have those challenges been overcome by banks?"
