The Sustainable Banking Principles and Sector Guidance Notes 2019 is a set of guidelines developed by the Bank of Ghana to promote sustainable and responsible banking practices in Ghana. The principles provide a framework for banks to integrate environmental, social, and governance (ESG) considerations into their business operations, risk management, and decision-making processes. The guidance notes provide detailed guidance on how to implement the principles and specific areas of ESG risk and opportunity that banks should consider. The Sustainable Banking Principles and Sector Guidance Notes are designed to be voluntary and flexible, allowing banks to tailor their approach to their specific circumstances and priorities. They are also aligned with international best practices, including the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and the Equator Principles.
