UNEP FI entered the new year with the accession of three banks to its fast-growing family. The advent of Bradesco Bank, Bank bjb and Garanti Bank expands UNEP FI’s fast-growing Banking Commission – whose members make up two-thirds of the partnership. Founded 68 years ago and listed on the Sao Paulo, New York and Madrid stock exchanges, Bradesco Bank is one of Brazil’s chief private banks and owns the largest insurance company in Latin America.
Garanti Bank is Turkey’s second largest private bank, and represents the highest ratings assessed to a Turkish bank.
Bank bjb, finally, is a government-owned, commercial bank that promises to bring a fresh perspective to UNEP FI and will contribute to broadening the partnership’s understanding of sustainable banking.
