About the

Global Alliance for Banking on Values


The Global Alliance for Banking on Values (GABV) is a network of banking leaders from around the world committed to advancing positive change in the banking sector. Our collective goal is to change the banking system so that it is more transparent, supports economic, social and environmental sustainability, and is composed of a diverse range of banking institutions serving the real economy.

The Alliance was founded after the 2008 financial crisis and formalized a network of financial institutions who for many years had already been operating in a sustainable and viable way. They formalized the movement of Values-based Banking in 2009.
