LONDON, April 2, 2007-
The Financial Times and IFC today announced the short list of banks nominated for the 2007 FT Sustainable Banking Awards. Selected from 151 entries representing more than 100 banks in 51 countries, the diverse nominees reflect the rising importance of sustainable banking around the world, especially in the emerging markets.


The FT and IFC, the private sector arm of the World Bank Group, created the awards to recognize banks that have shown leadership and innovation in integrating social, environmental, and corporate governance objectives into their operations.


The judging panel, which includes leading figures involved in sustainable finance and development, met last week in London to short-list banks for each of the five categories of awards.

Winners will be announced at a special dinner at the Landmark in London on June 7.  A major conference on sustainable banking, addressing the views of banks, their stakeholders, and civil society, will take place earlier in the day.


Lionel Barber, Editor of the Financial Times, commented: “The impressive short list reflects the diversity of financial institutions entering the 2007 awards, and we hope the continued growth of this program brings more attention to the issues of sustainability in finance and sparks further discussions on how banks around the world can advance in this area.”

“Consideration of sustainability issues by financial institutions is now moving into the mainstream,” said Lars Thunell, head of IFC.  “The number of entries to this competition and the quality of the short list show that more and more banks see the benefits of integrating sustainability into their business.”


The judging panel includes leading figures involved in sustainable finance and development:

  • John Willman, U.K. business editor, Financial Times (panel co-chair)
  • Lars Thunell, head, IFC (panel co-chair)
