Banking for People and Planet

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.
