Global Alliance for Banking on Values Summit starts today in Vancouver

Kindred’s CEO, Ian Thomas, Board Chair, Susan Taves, and Mary Ann Mooney, Chief, Member Experience and Brand Integrity, will join financial leaders from over 40 countries in Vancouver, Canada on February 19 and 20 to attend the first-ever Global Alliance for Banking on Values Summit. Hosted by the Global Alliance for Banking on Values (GABV) and Vancity, the Summit’s call to action—Redefining Banking for a Radically Different Future—will explore how banking and finance can help address social, environmental and economic challenges.

At a time where our world is facing monumental crises relating to climate change, displaced communities and a broadening gender divide, members of the values-based banking community are inviting policymakers, academics, economists and social activists to explore how we can put banking in service of both people and the planet.

“Humanity and our planet face unprecedented challenges,” says Peter Blom, Chair of the GABV and CEO of Triodos Bank. “Where you invest, and what you finance, matters.”

“We’ve been able to show through our member organizations that we can improve our communities through values-based banking, while at the same time producing better and more stable financial returns than those shown by the largest banks in the world,” says Marcos Eguiguren, Executive Director of the GABV.

Kindred is a member of the GABV, a network of 54 banking leaders and strategic partners from around the world committed to advancing positive change in the banking sector.

More information on the GABV Summit can be found in the press release.
