This guidebook discusses the integration of human rights principles and gender aspects within the framework of loans and investments in the banking sector. Sustainable financial financing that considers environmental, social, and governance factors is crucial in efforts to mitigate climate change and protect the environment.
The book also highlights the importance of implementing human rights principles and attention to gender aspects in financing to avoid legal risks, fines, and damage to the bank's reputation. The integration of human rights and gender aspects in loans and investments also provides financial and reputational benefits for banks.
The book provides case examples and efforts made by banks in integrating these two aspects. The main challenge is how banks can mitigate serious human rights violation cases in the loan and investment process. This book provides guidance for banks to grow and realize sustainable finance by integrating human rights and gender aspects.
