The Responsible Banker

These unprecedented times have strengthened members’ resolve to lead the world in setting the highest possible standards of social purpose, modern governance and environmental excellence. As the crisis deepens the need for collective responsibility across our organisations, in addition to vigilant monitoring of our rapidly changing environment and world, is even more critical. It is important we maintain momentum even at this challenging time.

Sustainability, climate risk and green finance have been a major focus for UK Finance for some time now. Sustainability is one of UK Finance’s top priorities for 2020 and during the year we will help the banking and finance industry play a key role in supporting a sustainable future.

In January 2020, UK Finance partnered with ESG tracking experts, Curation, to launch a fortnightly, member-only newsletter called The Responsible Banker, focused on ESG news, analysis and commentary across banking, compliance, regulation, accounting and much more.

Designed to be a one-stop shop for time-pressured CEOs and senior executives, the email briefing provides members with valuable and topical coverage and analysis of sustainability and environmental issues and their potential impact on the industry, as well as value solutions.

The Responsible Banker newsletter is sent out fortnightly on Mondays to all members. If you would like to register to receive the newsletter, please click here to login to your UK Finance account where you will see a check box for the Responsible Banker in the Preferences section


UK Finance works with Curation to curate the Responsible Banker. Curation have developed an ESG Tracker - an online platform which monitors key ESG themes and issues covered by recognised global ratings agencies, experts and the UN Sustainable Development Goals. UK Finance members are encouraged to see how Curation can help them with their individual ESG tracking.

ESG tracking includes:

  • Daily personalised ESG briefings – letting every member of staff follow their chosen topics
  • Access to Curation’s growing archive of insights.
  • Access to Curation’s proprietary ESG search engine, containing more than 180,000 curated and summarised ESG-focused articles
  • Unlimited site licence for internal use

Only by highlighting innovative solutions to shareholders, business leaders, colleagues and customers can we transition our industry and clients to a sustainable, purposeful and profitable future.
