SBFN welcomes the Central American Council of Superintendents of Banks, Insurance and Other Financial Institutions (CCSBSO) as our newest member.
CCSBSO is an international non-profit association with an indefinite duration, made up of the superintendencies in charge of exercising supervision of banking, insurance or financial activities in Colombia, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, and the Republic of Guatemala.
In August 2021, IFC, CCSBSO, FMO (Dutch: Nederlandse Financierings-Maatschappij voor Ontwikkelingslanden N.V.), and the Norwegian Development Finance Institution (Norfund) signed a Cooperation Agreement to support CCSBSO member countries to promote a shift to sustainable finance and share best practices in managing environmental, social, and governance (ESG) performance in the financial sector.
SBFN is excited to support the development of national and regional platforms that include a priority focus on helping the financial sector manage environmental and social risks and opportunities. We look forward to working with CCSBSO and its members to continue building capacity and awareness in the region.
