About beyondBanking and planetBanking The Inter-American Development Bank’s Structured and Corporate Finance Department, through its Financial Markets Division (FMK), developed the “beyondBanking program: Banking on Global Sustainability” in order to promote principles of environmental, social and corporate governance sustainability in financial intermediaries in Latin America and the Caribbean. Through planetBanking, one of beyondBanking’s pillars, the IDB seeks to promote the development of “green” initiatives and financial products in FIs in the region so that they can meet the growing private sector demand for climate change-related financing.
