Ecology signs up to GABV
Green building society Ecology has been announced as the latest sustainable finance organisation to join the Global Alliance for Banking on Values (GABV). This membership is regarded as a strong endorsement of Ecology’s social and environmental credentials and will see them extend their influence at the global level.
For GABV, the addition of Ecology further bolsters their position as a leading force in the drive for a more sustainable banking system. Ecology is the first UK-headquartered financial institution to join the membership organisation, while European bank Triodos gives further UK representation in the Alliance through its Bristol-based branch.
Ecology joins GABV at the same time as Paraguayan microfinance bank Vision Banco and Nepalese renewable energy specialists, Clean Energy Development Bank.
GABV is a membership organisation made up of the world’s leading sustainable banks from Asia, Africa, Australia, Latin America, North America and Europe.
