Global Alliance - For Banking on Values
Put your money where your heart is
The Global Alliance for Banking on Values (GABV) is an independent network of banks and banking cooperatives with a shared mission to put people’s needs first. They find solutions to international problems by promoting a positive, viable alternative to the current financial system. The members are the world’s leading sustainable banks, from Asia, Africa, Australia, Latin America to North America and Europe. Members include microfinance banks in emerging markets, credit unions, community banks and sustainable banks financing social, environmental and cultural enterprise. All comply with sustainable banking principles and have a shared commitment to find global solutions to international problems – and to promote a positive, viable alternative to the current financial system.
Profitable and growing, the 25 banks in the Global Alliance for Banking on Values are independent, licensed financial institutions with combined assets of approximately $100 billion. Together they touch the lives of more than 20 million people in 30 countries. While many of their mainstream contemporaries have been hit hard by the financial crisis, this network of progressive banks have largely flourished during it. Collectively they represent a significant constituency with a powerful voice. They share a commitment to build a more sustainable future for unserved people, communities and the environment, and have developed effective ways to deliver it.
