Celebrating the growth of the Global Alliance, Dr Marcos Eguiguren, Executive Director, GABV said "With each new member joining our movement, we are getting 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. Every day, we show examples of how business can be done in a different way that has no impact on the environment and actually supports development of communities worldwide. I am happy to see that all three new members are doing business this way and I see their excitement to join an inspirational network of banking experts and partners who are delivering on a mission that puts banking back in service of people, the economy and the environment. Only by working together we can influence a change we want to see."
The Global Alliance, together with its members and partners, continues its work to make the world of finance more values-based, to minimize the effect on the environment, and to become a role model and inspiration for change in the financial world.
