The Banco de la Republica Oriental del Uruguay (Banco Republica) Adheres to the Equator Principles

03 January 2008

Since 3rd January, 2008, the Banco República adheres to the Equator Principles (set of guidelines for determining, assessing and managing social and environmental aspects of investment projects, established at the request of the International Finance Corporation, agency of the World Bank, and voluntarily assumed by financing institutions).

By implementing these principles, the society, in general, and the companies, in particular, will be benefited, reducing their operational risks and increasing their competitivity and easy access to international markets.

This way, the Banco República enters into the group of main banks financing more than 95% of investment projects – at global level, which have already adhered to the Equator Principles.
