CaixaBank was founded in 1980, and is a leading Spanish retail bank. The bank operates through three segments: banking and insurance, real estate activity, and investments. With the mergers and takeovers of Banca Cívica and Banco de Valencia, and the retail banking, wealth management and corporate banking businesses of Barclays in Spain, CaixaBank has extended its share of the Spanish financial market. CaixaBank signed the Equator Principles in March 2007, and is therefore part of BankTrack's Equator Principles Track and Chase project.

CaixaBank and the Equator Principles
The Equator Principles are a voluntary commitment of banks to try to avoid or minimise the social, environmental and human rights impact of projects they finance. For more information on the Equator Principles see their website here and the campaign page of BankTrack here.
The Equator Principles exist already since 2003. CaixaBank adopted the Equator Principles in 2007.
Reporting on the Equator Principles
CaixaBank must report annually on its implementation of the Equator Principles. All information is supposed to be found here.
