A high impact tool for consumers

The Fair Finance Guide is a web-based tool that enables bank clients and policy holders to make their bank more socially responsible, fair, and sustainable by benchmarking it on several themes.

At the moment, Fair Finance Guides are active in 9 countries. Scroll down to see in which countries you can check your bank!

 Race to the Top

The aim of the Fair Finance Guide is to initiate a ‘race to the top’ between banks on corporate social responsibility (CSR). Ideally, a self-reinforcing process will develop in which social, environmental and economic standards are raised continuously, ultimately resulting in sustainable credits, investments and asset management all over the world. The Fair Finance Guide contributes to banks’CSR policies and practices on a wide variety of issues, benefiting a broad audience.
