Helping Communities Work facilitates collaborations with signatories of the Principles for Responsible Banking, which are a unique framework for ensuring that the strategies and practices of signatory banks align with the vision society has set out for its future in the 17 Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Climate Agreement.
220 banks have now joined the responsible banking movement for change, and they represent more than a third of the global banking industry. This is a journey of unprecedented scale and scope at a time when such ambition is urgently needed.
HCW also invites the participation of signatories of the Principles for Responsible Investment, which make the case for impact investing in the SDG's. Signatories can broaden the scope of the ESG investment landscape by incorporating a plan designed to advance the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. The strategy will help to align and advance sustainable development, community reinvestment and place-based impact investing in opportunity zones and other economically-distressed areas across the United States. https://www.unpri.org/download?ac=5909
