Positive Banking is a global movement, championing a more sustainable, diverse, and transparent banking industry.
This year Positive Banking is being held online and is inviting bankers, consumers, government agencies, and technology start-ups from around the world to be part of the dialogue to create a more prosperous future, where banks become true partners in the sustainability transition.
Join Positive Banking online and broadcast live across the world from May 26th-27th, reflecting our ambition to deliver a zero carbon, environmentally conscious conference. Positive Banking aims to bring about #changeinbanking, examining how the financial system can help fund the sustainability transition, ‘build back better’ and help us emerge from the current crisis. The global banking sector has a fundamental role to play in delivering on the UN Sustainable Development Goals and The Paris Climate Agreement, with values-based banking advancing positive social and environmental change. Positive Banking is the future of the banking industry. Do not miss out and join the global change.

In 2021, Loop will become available in Canada, Japan and Australia.
