Let’s share a powerful way to change the world by celebrating together the #BankingOnValues international day (November 7).
1) You have to know this
Your money has real power to change the world (see why…)
You have a powerful way to act for the things you care about.
When you choose banking on values, you support financing a real economy with human value.
Celebrate with us the international Banking On Values Day (7th November) to bring this idea further! It’s not something theoretical, but a growing reality, with near 60 banks in the 5 continents.
- If you care about climate, you will like to know that we are promoting renewable energies in many countries, like our member Vermont State Employees Credit Union is doing in the United States.
- If you care about equality, know that we are supporting initiatives worldwide to make it real, like empowering women that have escaped violence, with Bank of Australia.
- If you care about migrants, values-based organisations like the Bangladesh Brac Bank are helping them to have the decent life that they deserve.
The Global Alliance for Banking on Values turns now 10 years working to achieve that values-based banking becomes the norm and not anymore an exception, everywhere. Should not money and banks always serve a human purpose?
2) Now that you know, act with us
