FIRA Banco de Mexico points out NCD relevance for future generations
Mexican bank FIRA Banco de Mexico signed the Natural Capital Declaration so that future generations can have access to “at least the same environmental capital endowed to us”, according to the bank’s General Director.<br/><br/>
Rodrigo Sánchez Mújica, FIRA’s General Director, said that “sustainable development is at the core of FIRA´s mission and it is our desire to seek sustainability in every financial operation in which FIRA and any of its partner financial intermediaries takes part.<br/><br/>
Mr Sánchez Mújica added: “FIRA is well aware that all the extreme climatic events that have been taking place constitute a signal that action has to be taken to, first, mitigate all the anthropogenic causes of these events and, second, to find novel ways to finance all the required infrastructure to adapt to and solve the consequences of this phenomena. This issue poses a great danger to general wellbeing and hinders the development of the whole world, particularly those most in need. FIRA proactively promotes the adoption of new ideas to foster sustainable development and thus endorses the Natural Capital Declaration in the hope that future generations can have access to at least the same environmental capital endowed to us.”<br/><br/>
FIRA, which has been the main financing source for agribusiness in Mexico for 55 years, has developed a wide range of policies and tools in the technical assistance, lending and guaranties areas, as well as internal business practices regarding topics such as equal opportunities and gender policies, sound environmental practices, and water and energy savings social responsibility.
