Signalling a growing appetite for the values-based banking movement
The Global Alliance for Banking on Values (GABV), a network of the world's leading values-based banks, today officially welcomed Banco Ademi (Dominican Republic) as its newest member. This marks an increase in membership for the GABV to 28 banks and banking cooperatives, all of which share a unique mission to use finance to deliver sustainable economic, social and environmental development.
Celebrating the membership, Dr Marcos Eguiguren, Executive Director, GABV said; "I welcome these banking trailblazers to the Alliance. Each member brings a unique perspective and expertise on how to use finance to create positive impact for the individuals, organizations and communities we serve. I look forward to connecting our latest members to an innovative and inspirational network of leaders, experts and partners committed to answering the question, 'As banking institutions, how can we use all of our people, capital and resources to accelerate the scale of the economic, social and environmental impact we are duty-bound to support?'"
Banco Ademi is the first Caribbean member of the GABV. Unlike mainstream banks, Banco Ademi has a values-driven agenda at the core of their mission. Banco Ademi is committed to the economic and social development of the Dominican Republic with special attention to micro - small and medium sized businesses.
Guillermo Rondón, the CEO of Banco Ademi, expressed his joy at becoming part of the GABV network: "We are very pleased to join the GABV. From the beginning until now, Banco Ademi's activities are based on the values of ethics and social responsibility. Banco Ademi is always aware of our economic and social commitment, and the role we play within our country."
Values-based banks in the GABV are independent and profitable organisations delivering long term benefits for people and the environment. They are grounded in their communities, and work in the real economy (not the speculative financial economy) to offer transparent, inclusive financial services for a wide range of customers. GABV members play a crucial role in the transition to a more sustainable global economy.
