National Cooperative Bank Celebrates Banking on Values Day 2022

BOVD 2022 - NCB - IntentionalArlington, VA (November 10, 2022) — National Cooperative Bank (NCB), a leading financial institution dedicated to providing banking solutions to cooperatives, their members, and socially responsible organizations nationwide and a member of the Global Alliance for Banking on Values, is proud to celebrate Banking on Values Day.

For Banking on Values Day 2022 the theme “Real impact behind the big words” focuses on how values-based banks remain authentic and true to their values and achieve real impact. The Global Alliance for Banking on Values (GABV) and its members are committed to eight values that describe our movement.

Values-based banks are intentional in creating social and environmental impact. It’s why they exist, and this intentionality guides everything they do.

Values-based banks take a holistic and coherent approach to the design of their business model, being aware about potential conflicts and challenges.

The values are reflected, intentionally and appropriately, to bring positive social and environmental impact in a specific context.

Values-based banks are accountable at all levels of the business model. Transparency enables outsiders to easily understand how a bank is behaving.

Values-based banks work with others to change the banking system itself so it is better able to serve people and protect the environment.

Values-based banks are genuinely authentic by being intentional in what they do and integrating values in their business.

Values-based banks aim to build an inclusive financial system that responds to the needs of everyone, and not just a few.

Values-based banks aspire to the highest standards and want to be recognized as thought leaders at the forefront of progressive banking.

NCB has a strong focus on serving low- and moderate-income communities nationwide and providing capital for co-op and community development initiatives.

The GABV’s member banks have a shared commitment to find local solutions to global problems – and to promote a positive, viable alternative to the current financial system.
