In collaboration with the Socially Responsible Investment Coalition (SRIC), ICCR sponsored an informative and engaging roundtable on sustainable banking at the Oblate School of Theology in San Antonio on April 6th. The idea for the round table was part of the vision and mission of the ICCR financial services caucus and was realized when the group found an accomplished and energetic partner in the Global Alliance for Banking on Values.

Since the near global financial meltdown of 2008, ICCR members have engaged major U.S. banks about their mission and vision in society and have been challenging them to accept responsibility for their respective and collective misdeeds. They have also convened a broader conversation around corporate culture and how they are transmitting the core values and principles that constitute that culture to their thousands of employees and representatives.
