The 6th Report underscores the challenge of maintaining ethical standards in everyday financial operations amid widespread greenwashing and social washing practices. Despite global banks making sustainability claims, a significant gap often exists between their stated commitments and actual actions. In contrast, ethical banks prioritize transparency and member participation, sharing financial agreements and involving members in decision-making processes. The report, a collaborative effort by Fondazione Finanza Etica, Fundación Finanzas Éticas, and FEBEA, demonstrates a notable alignment between ethical principles and operational practices in ethical finance, distinguishing it from profit-driven mainstream banks.
Serving as an educational tool, the research advocates for ethical finance as a transformative movement shaping the financial landscape. It calls for European support, emphasizing the crucial role of integrity in aligning words and actions for credibility and success.
