UNEP FI - United Nations Environment Program; Finance Initiative
UNEP FI is a global partnership between UNEP and the financial sector founded in 1992. UNEP FI’s mission is to bring about systemic change in finance to support a sustainable world, and is highlighted in its motto, “Changing finance, financing change”. Member organisations, representing banking, insurance and investment, recognize sustainability as part of a collective responsibility and support approaches to anticipate and prevent potential negative impacts of the financial industry on the environment and society. UNEP FI develops selective collaborations with other partner organisations, in order to increase awareness and raise support for critical activities. [Source: Swiss Sustainable Finance]
