Please refer to BRPD CIRCULAR NO. 02 DATED 27.02.2011 on Policy Guidelines for Green Banking.
Banks are required to report their green banking initiatives/activities to Department of Off-site Supervision (DOS) on quarterly basis as per clause 4 of the said circular. Accordingly banks are reporting since December 2011 quarter end basis under phase I and March 2012 quarter end basis under phase II in the structured format as provided by BRPD.
The existing format for reporting green banking activities has been reviewed to cover all the green banking activities under phase II and a new reporting format under phase II has been prepared (copy attached).
Now, it has been decided that banks shall report on 30.06.2012 basis in the new structured format to Green Banking Cell, BRPD instead of DOS by 30.07.2012. Banks will be required to continue to submit reports to Green Banking Cell, BRPD on the subsequent quarters within the next 15 days of the respective quarter end.
Banks shall keep their annual report and websites updated with the disclosures on green banking initiatives/activities.
