Bank Negara Indonesia was established in 19I46. Today it offers deposit and loan facilities for both companies and individuals, through its three business segments: Business Banking Cooperative, Medium and Small; Consumer Banking; and International Banking and Treasury. The financial institution is supported by a number of subsidiaries, namely Bank BNI Syariah, BNI Multifinance, BNI Sekuritas, BNI Life Insurance, and BNI Remittance.

In terms of senior leadership accountability, the responsibility for sustainability issues within Bank Negara Indonesia lies with the board of directors. Regarding trade associations, the financial institution discloses a list of associations of which it is a member including sustainability- and non-sustainability-related organisations. The financial institution also publicly commits to gender equality and women’s empowerment.
Bank Negara Indonesia discloses the proportion of its total direct operations workforce for each employee category by age group and gender. It also discloses the proportion of its workforce covered by collective bargaining agreements.

There is no evidence that Bank Negara Indonesia links the remuneration of its executive or management teams to sustainability performance criteria. Moreover, in terms of female representation in leadership positions, women are underrepresented on the board of directors where only four out of 12 board members are women. The financial institution has an opportunity to reach at least 40% female representation in senior leadership positions and on the board.

This could include the amount or share of finance directed towards fossil fuels. Additionally, the financial institution has an opportunity to disclose the key sectors and companies it has identified as priorities to engage with on climate change, specifically on alignment with the Paris Agreement.

Bank Negara Indonesia states that it is committed to respecting human rights, but has an opportunity to place this statement in a public policy document.

While the financial institution provides a grievance mechanism to raise human rights, as well as bribery and corruption, concerns or complaints it should specify that the complainant has the choice to identify themselves or remain anonymous. In terms of transparency on financial inclusivity, Bank Negara Indonesia has an opportunity to disclose the amount of finance directed towards usually excluded groups or low-income developing countries.
