Besides the financial tools, FEBEA has set up several thematic working groups to analyse matters of ethical and solidarity finance and provide tools for all members. The working groups provide contribution and documents on specific themes useful for the lobbying activity of the Federation with the European institutions. The working groups are created ad hoc, assembled and disbanded according to the needs and circumstances. They welcome members interested in the topic and, if necessary, external experts.
Today, there are 3 active working groups:
- Ethical Impact Bonds
- Socially Reponsible and Impact Investing
- Capitalisation of ethical banks
In the past years, FEBEA created the following working groups:
- Financing the South of the World and Fair Trade
- Financing Healthcare Infrastructures and Social Services
- Sustainable Development
- Social Inclusion
In some cases, the results obtained by the working groups led to the creation and launch of dedicated financial instruments to meet the needs that emerged from discussions among members.
