Our Approach to ESG Practices

As a purpose-driven organization, we hold ourselves accountable to responsible business practices and are committed to embedding sustainability throughout our entire business. We believe a sharp focus on Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) best practices aligns with our corporate values and creates long-term value for all of our stakeholders.

Our Commitment to Sustainable Finance

We have set an ambitious goal to dedicate half of our portfolio to sustainable finance by 2025, with the aim of accelerating the transition to a lower carbon and more inclusive economy through financing the industries and activities most directly contributing to these goals. Guided by the UN Sustainable Development Goals and other frameworks, sustainability themes include Environmental Sustainability, Affordable Housing, Healthcare Access, and Financial Inclusion. As an important step towards our commitment, we issued our first Green Bond, specifically focused on financing Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency projects. Forbright’s Green Financing Framework will guide its initial Green Bond issuance, for which Sustainalytics has provided a Second-Party Opinion.
