This interactive tool can be used to assess and track banks' performance on ESG integration, based on all public disclosures issued by each bank. Any improvements or regressions in performance compared to the previous year are also displayed.
Users may also create a custom list of banks, selecting from both ASEAN banks as well as international banks that are active in ASEAN, to compare against a wider set of peers.

The Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), established by the Financial Stability Board (FSB) in December 2015, issued recommendations structured around four thematic areas (Governance, Strategy, Risk Management and Metrics & Targets). These recommendations apply to all sectors and also include a supplemental guidance specific to banks. In the TCFD section, the Sustainable Banking Assessment sub-indicators have been mapped to these four thematic areas for banks to assess how ready they are to implement TCFD recommendations.
The Principles for Responsible Banking is a framework created by UNEP FI in 2019 to guide the banking industry in becoming more sustainable, so that the industry can enhance its positive contributions to society at large. There are six principles - Alignment, Impact & Target Setting, Clients & Customers, Stakeholders, Governance & Culture, and Transparency & Accountability. All principles are intended to be applied at strategic, portfolio and transactional levels, and across all business areas.
