IMPLEMENTATION OF THE EQUATOR PRINCIPLES
BROU has a technical team of specialists in the assessment of environmental and social risk who, besides their specific discipline, count with the support of professional advisors in several fields, both belonging to the functional frameworks of the Institution as well as independent professionals hired when necessary.
The team belongs to the Technical Advisory Department of the Corporate Business Unit, has full technical independence, develops an ongoing professional training plan and is tightly linked to organisations and/or institutions involved in environmental and social issues, such as national and international universities, environmental government agencies, local governments, NGOs, etc. On the present year, and within the continuous training framework, members of the technical team are close to end the Master in Environmental Management and Audits, taught by the European University of the Atlantic through the Ibero-American University Foundation (FUNIBER) platform.
