As a signatory of the Equator Principles (EP), BB adopts the standards of International Finance Corporation (IFC) on risk analysis to ensure that financings will contribute to social development and that the best environmental management practices will be complied with in the implementation of the projects. For projects covered by the EP, we require socio-environmental compliance evaluations, conducted by an independent consulting firm, in case a risk in an analysis conducted by our responsible area is indicated.
BB uses socio-environmental criteria in risk analysis, credit limit and investment projects, and conditions financing to compliance with environmental legislation, applicable to each sector that it finances, requiring legal documentation.
