Fair Finance Philippines assessed the policies of Philippine Banks using Fair Finance Guide International (FFGI) Methodology.

The Fair Finance Guide International Methodology is based on existing international standards and conventions as well as a range of other widely accepted guidelines in areas pertaining to responsible businesses. The thematic areas that Fair Finance Philippines has focussed on are the eight core themes: Climate Change; Corruption; Gender Equality; Human Rights; Labor Rights; Nature; Taxes; and Transparency & Accountability, and the three that are deemed important within the Philippine context: Financial Inclusion; Consumer Protection; and Arms.

The Fair Finance Philippines Policy Assessment 2020, launched in August 2022, is the follow up to the Fair Finance Philippines Policy Assessment 2019 that reviewed the policies of five major banks in the Philippines across 11 different themes. These banks were BDO Unibank, Inc (BDO), Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI), Land Bank of the Philippines, Metropolitan Bank & Trust Company (MetroBank), and Rizal Commercial Banking Corporation (RCBC).
