Commitments and Principles

Our clients and their needs are at the heart of our work at United Bankers. United Bankers operates in a responsible manner, economically, environmentally, and socially, and promotes sustainability in its operations and investments.

The company is guided by not only its values, but also international commitments, best practices, and financial regulation. The key principles and commitments that guide United Bankers’ sustainability are set out in the Code of Conduct and Principles of Responsible Investment. We also expect our service providers and product suppliers to comply with the United Bankers' Supplier Code of Conduct.

Since 2012, United Bankers has been committed to the UN Principles for Responsible Investment (UN PRI). United Bankers' latest UN PRI Assessment Report and Transparency Report were published in January 2024. At the beginning of 2024, United Bankers joined the PRI Spring investor initiative focusing on biodiversity. As of 2021, United Bankers is committed to assessing the climate risks of its operations according to the international Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) guidelines. In 2022, United Bankers committed to respecting human rights in its operations in accordance with the UN Guiding Principles on Responsibility (UNGP).


In the climate roadmap United Bankers has committed, among other things, to setting climate targets in accordance with the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), as well as reducing the greenhouse gas emissions of the investment portfolios and increasing their carbon sequestration.

Furthermore, we also seek to promote responsible investment through various advocacy groups and initiatives. We participate in the action of FINSIF, Finance Finland and Finnish Venture Capital Association.
