Social Finance Framework

Transitioning to a more sustainable future is a collective effort, which will require substantial amounts of finance. We believe in collective action and consider financing at the core of our efforts to advance sustainability.

As a leading SME bank, we want to support our customers while generating positive societal impact and address social challenges. Our Social Finance Framework enables us to issue social finance instruments within the eligible categories.

How we work with Social Finance

Eligible categories

The eligibility criteria outlined in our Social Finance Framework are aligned with our broader ESG strategy and support United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Our framework specifies two eligible categories, which are:

  • Access to healthcare
  • Employment generation


We are committed to transparency and our Social Finance Framework forms the basis for tracking and reporting the allocated proceeds, as well as generating an impact report.

Updates on the progress against the social financing classifications based on this framework will be reported annually in a Social Finance Report and Socio-Economic Impact Report.
