The Equator Principles

MUFG Bank supports its clients' environmental and social risk management and contributes toward a sustainable world by adoption of and adherence to the Equator Principles, a risk management framework for determining, assessing and managing environmental and social risks and impacts for large-scale projects.

Environmental and social impact assessment and risk management through the Equator Principles

MUFG Bank (the Bank) recognizes that large-scale infrastructure and natural resources development projects may have adverse impacts on local environment and surrounding communities.
The Bank, as a financier and/or a financial advisor, works in partnership with its clients to determine, assess and manage environmental and social risks and impacts related to the projects.
The Bank adopted the Equator Principles in 2005 to ensure that the projects it finances and advises on are developed in a socially responsible manner and establish good environmental management practices to minimize, mitigate, and/or offset environmental and social risks and impacts.
