The new members of the Global Alliance and the #BankingOnValues movement are:

Charity Bank  (UK)

Cooperative Bank of Karditsa  (Greece)

Dai-Ichi-Kangyo (DKC) Credit Union  (Japan)

ESAF Small Finance Bank (India)

We are also happy to announce the latest partners to join our alliance in the last quarter: CARE International, The Institute for Social Banking (ISB) and Fundación Avina.

At the end of June 2018, the GABV family officially consisted of 54 members and 10 supporting partners.

Dr Marcos Eguiguren, Executive Director of the GABV, celebrated these latest successes: “At this time I am very happy to see that the GABV has grown into truly international alliance gathering more than 50 members from all around the world. Achieving and surpassing this milestone is truly incredible. I am pleased to see the growth in the number of supporting partners who will work with us to achieve a healthier financial system.  With each new member joining our movement, we get a unique perspective and expertise on how to use finance to create positive economic, social and environmental impact for the individuals, organisations and communities we serve. We continue to be role models for change by educating and influencing other financial institutions to adopt the triple bottom line approach and to help clients and consumers make good choices.”
