Environmental Bankers Association (EBA)
is a non-profit trade association that represents the financial services industry, including bank and non-bank financial institutions, insurers, and those who provide services to them.
Mission & Purpose
We promote best practices that protect and preserve net income and assets of banks, other financial institutions, and allied industries from environmental risk and liability resulting from lending and asset management activities. Our business
focuses on three Environmental banking areas:
Environmental Policy Development; Environmental Risk Evaluation; and Environmental Risk Mitigation.

Depending on the issue, there are a host of environmental risk mitigates that can help to get the deal done.More
