    BBVA has been recognized by BankTrack as the leading Spanish financial institution in the field of human rights in its comparative analysis ‘The BankTrack Global Human Rights Benchmark 2022’.

    With a total rating of 7.5 points, the bank continues to be among the top ten financial entities globally in the ranking prepared by the NGO, as explained by the entity itself.

    For the final score, BankTrack uses 14 parameters based on four blocks of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. These contemplate the adoption of a policy of commitment to human rights; launching a due diligence process; the presentation of public information; and the repair of the potential negative impact of the financial entity on human rights.
