Posted on . Filed under Association News. Be the first to comment.

Culminating its 18-month project on environmental governance standards (EGS) for DFIs in Asia and the Pacific www.egs-asia.com, ADFIAP has released three resource/trainers books to “green” the bank’s operational and lending processes and practices, using the internal environmental management system (IEMS) and environmental risk scan (ERS), respectively. Aside from conferences, workshops and capacity-building activities undertaken under the project, these ‘tools’ are part and parcel of the outputs of the EGS project funded by the European Commission under its EU-Asia Pro Eco Programme. Germany’s UNEP/Wuppertal Institute Collaborating Centre for Sustainable Consumption and Production (CSCP) and the United Kingdom’s University of Leeds and University of St. Andrews provided the technical assistance in completing the IEMS and ERS, respectively.
