Why do we fund this investment?

FMO is increasingly supporting the role of banking associations in serving as change agents within the financial sector to introduce environmental and social management concepts, leadership opportunities and knowledge. Banking associations serve a key function through their work with members banks to improve the understanding of environmental and social risks/opportunities at a country level, agree to common standards for managing these risks, provide tools and methods that allow banks to better manage these risks, and to be better prepared for accessing new financial opportunities.
