Discussing the “impact” of banking and finance is a central topic today – both in society and in the financial sector itself. How far does the impact of banking and finance reach? What are criteria that define “positive” impact? How can non-financial impact best be measured and reported? And where might be limits in showing impact, for example regarding long-term and transformational effects of financed cultural or educational projects?
Sustainable banks already for decades dedicate their activities to “impact”, long before this buzzword has entered the stage. Always, the tangible effects on the real economy are at the core of their businesses. Based on values like responsibility, trust and transparency, they finance social, cultural and ecological projects only.
