Implementation of the Equator Principles

As part of its corporate commitment to sustainability, Banco de Crédito – BCP, the leading Peruvian financial institution, announced on January 22nd 2013 its adoption of the Equator Principles (EP). By incorporating the Equator Principles into BCP’s Credit Risk Management Policy, the bank is strengthening its risk analysis and assessment, especially of investment projects. Moreover, by embracing these principles the bank joins an important group of international financial institutions that are implementing best social and environmental risk management practices.

BCP has incorporated the EP III requirements for the analysis of environmental and social risks within its methodology and tools (such as a check- list and due diligence to analize issues such as the project scope, climate change issues, human rights and reporting requirements).

The guidelines for EP application process include an outsourcing model, in which independent experts seek to identify risks and social and environmental impacts on the respective economic sector. The review may result in covenants and action plans for clients for legal compliance with Peruvian laws and regulations for category B, and legal and technical review for category A.
