Recently, GLS Bank published a position paper: A change is needed! Necessary framework requirements for sustainable development

On a global scale the trend-setting decisions for the transition of our economic system have been made. The Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations are a set of common objectives and their achievement is indispensable for the future of our planet and humanity. The Paris Agreement under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change is the mandatory agreement to reduce global temperature significantly to below 2°C. This implies the rigorous departure from fossil fuels and nuclear energy until 2050.

Globally the objectives have been decided on. Countless SMEs are able and ready to advance the change towards a socio-environmental economy. To attain these objectives GLS Bank calls upon the politics to clearly and irrevocably set the necessary framework.
