The Finance for the Future Awards recognise leadership within the finance function to drive sustainable economies. The awards highlight the role that the finance function plays in innovation and integrated thinking.
The Global Alliance for Banking on Values (GABV) was announced as one of the Climate Leaders at last night’s Finance for the Future Awards Ceremony, in partnership with the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), Accounting for Sustainability and Deloitte.
The GABV qualified as a finalist for the Finance for the Future awards for the ‘Driving Change in the Finance Community’ category. From all the finalists, the awards jury selected a number of winners for the Climate Leadership special award, based on their best climate action practices.
The GABV has been recognised for its pioneering work in climate finance and its international collaboration on measuring and reporting financed emissions with the Partnership for Carbon Accounting Financials (PCAF).
Our Climate Action
As a movement of frontrunners, the GABV wants to commit and influence the industry and its stakeholders to act further, go faster and be coherent in addressing climate change.
Martin Rohner, Executive Director, GABV: “We aim for a holistic understanding of the impact of climate change upon our clients and communities and how we can help them transform and adapt. Finance is here to serve people and the planet, not the other way around. As frontrunners in sustainable finance, we must lead the way.”
