Environmental, social and governance (ESG) principles have long been embedded in Taipei Fubon Bank’s thinking.

For every loan or credit decision, the bank’s leaders look not only at the credit fundamentals of the client, but also their ESG scores.

Fubon has a dedicated ESG team that covers all green products, working in close collaboration with the credit team and the bank’s relationship managers.

Since 2017, Fubon has been one of the pioneer banks in Taiwan for renewable-energy project finance and advisory. By the end of March this year, it had financed more than four gigawatts of renewable energy, capable of generating about 11 billion kilowatt hours a year of green power.
