IMPLEMENTATION OF THE EQUATOR PRINCIPLES

By adopting EPIII, CBA builds on its’ commitment to responsible lending and formalises the reporting of our environmental and social risk practices. CBA’s EPIII practices and controls are embedded in CBA’s loan origination policies, processes, key decisions forums and reporting systems. In addition to the initial EPIII face to face training, this year the relevant risk, relationship and product teams completed e-learning on Equator Principles III.
