Fair Finance Vietnam launches policy assessment

19 May 2021

Using the Fair Finance Guide Methodology, FFV assessed the publicly disclosed policies of ten Vietnamese commercial banks on their Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) commitments. Twelve assessed themes include: Climate Change, Power Generation, Nature, Gender Equality, Human Rights, Labor Rights, Arms, Financial Inclusion, Consumer Protection, Anti-Corruption, Transparency & Accountability, and Taxes.

The assessment highlights that the ten commercial banks are at a very nascent stage concerning ESG policy commitments. That means these ten banks have just entered the "race to the top".
