Sustainable Banking Expert & Principles for Responsible Banking Review & Support Lead

United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI)

Location: Geneva


Job Description

In order to ensure effective implementation of the Principles for Responsible Banking, there will be an annual review, feedback & support meeting (mostly virtual) between the UNEP FI Secretariat and each Signatory Bank, usually following the Signatory Bank’s annual reporting. In addition to ensuring each bank is making progress at an adequate speed and providing feedback and support, the outcomes and learnings from these meetings will feed into the broader peer learning and support structure all banks benefit from as well as the biennial collective progress report the community of Signatories has agreed to publish through UNEP FI.

As Sustainable Banking Expert joining UNEP FI’s growing Banking Team, you would be responsible for leading this feedback & review process. As more Signatories join, we would be looking to build up a small team of Sustainable Banking Experts to take on the increasing workload.

Specific tasks and responsibilities would include:

  • Meet (mostly virtual) once a year with each Signatory Bank to review and discuss their progress and provide feedback & support for their further implementation of the Principles. Meetings will be held together with UNEP FI’s respective regional coordinators, with which the Sustainable Banking Expert is expected to collaborate with closely.
  • Based on your review and in coordination with the Banking Team Lead, identify cases where banks need to take additional action to be line with their commitments. Guide them in developing a workplan to address the identified shortcomings and monitor successful implementation. Where shortcomings are not addressed adequately, in coordination with the Banking Team Lead refer the case to UNEP FI’s banking governance body.
  • Be the first point of contact for Signatory banks’ implementation-related questions.
  • Identify case studies and good practices to feed into the systematic peer learning program, which will be set up and implemented by another part of UNEP FI’s Banking Team.
  • Lead the production of the biennial collective progress report.
  • Share your knowledge and experience and help develop the sustainable banking expertise of more junior team members.
