Influence your bank by telling them what you think about their policy and practise and investments.
The increasingly rapid decline of global biodiversity (nature) is one of the most pressing environmental concerns. The loss of biodiversity has enormous potential costs and risks with it, such as the destruction of habitats, the loss of ecosystem services, the threat to the food supply, and the disappearance of medicinal plants.
The Fair Bank Guide therefore considers it important to also assess bank policy on nature. The investment policy of the bank should ensure that it is only involved in investments in companies and aim to prevent further loss of natural values, and governments care and this principle systematically put into practice.
A good bank policy nature including compliance with the following criteria:
Protection of ecosystems and natural habitats;
Protection of plant and animal species;
Protection of genetic material.
Banks in the development of policy in this area make use of international standards which are described in our latest report.
