Banco Galicia 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. Banco Galicia adopted the Equator Principles in 2007.
