Welcome to the 11th Annual Meeting of the Global Alliance for Banking on Values


It is our pleasure to invite you to an inspiring meeting hosted in the heart of Europe surrounded by the Swiss Alps, from 24 to 27 February 2020.

Every Degree Matters – Mobilising Finance for People and Planet


Dear Guests,

We are delighted to invite you to the Global Alliance for Banking on Values Annual Meeting 2020 and address together Every Degree Matters – Mobilising Finance for People and Planet.

Climate change is a fact. In the Alpine region, melting glaciers are silent witnesses of the constant rise in temperatures on earth. These changes in nature do not only affect the environment but also lead to domino effects on all levels of society including economic uncertainty and increased vulnerability of already marginalised groups.

As a network of values-based banks, we are aware of the pivotal role and responsibility of the finance sector in the process of moving towards a climate-friendly society. This Annual Meeting will offer the opportunity to share ideas and learn from each other how to be part of the solution.

Hosted by the GABV founding member Alternative Bank Switzerland, we will gather in Bern, Switzerland – a picturesque city with views of the Alps and a political centre where commitment to social banking can inspire big changes.

Join us in mobilising finance for people and planet.

Kind regards,
