Projects, reviewed by the Bank as a part of loan issuing process, are being probed not only for business-related aspects, but also for potential ESG impact.
There is a number of industries, the Bank does not cooperate with, because we see those as contradictory towards our values. Among those are gambling, arms dealing etc.
Countering money-laundering, terrorism and proliferation financing is not only required by the law, but also is our moral obligation.
The Bank acknowledges the value of international cooperation in achieving ESG goals. For this reason, we contemplate becoming a signatory of Principles for Responsible Banking.
