Sustainable Banking Network – Meetings

The annual SBN meetings are the principal space for dialogue, networking and knowledge generation. These meetings provide SBN members with a platform to showcase national initiatives in the sustainable banking space, to discuss current issues and jointly develop new approaches to sustainable banking.

Additionally, regulators are invited to participate in IFC-hosted dialogue events and expert groups, such as the annual Performance Standards Community of Learning, a meeting for financial institutions that have adopted the Equator Principles, and other international or regional initiatives focused on sustainable finance issues.
