Implementation of the Equator Principles
Bankinter has defined Investment Sustainability Principles, as part of its Risk Management and Control Framework. It has established financial guidelines for industries with potentially greater impact on the environment that allow it to develop measures and references that the Bank must follow in its decision-making process, considering the best practices and international standards.
In line with this strategy, the Bank has adhered to the Equator Principles (2016), a leading international initiative for responsible investment in the financial sector with the objective of evaluating and managing the environmental and social risks of the projects to be financed. In 2020, 16 projects to which these principles apply were financed (16 in 2019), all in Spain and Portugal, and all involving the renewable energy sector. Of these, 14 were graded B (13 in 2019) and 2 were graded C (2 in 2019). Investment amounted to 340.5 million euros (261.6 million euros in 2019).
