Vision & mission


Forum Ethibel pioneers standards in the sustainable finance industry and (social) economy. We challenge the status quo and enforce credible sustainable CSR and SRI practices. We envision a future in which businesses, organisations and financial institutions have fully integrated environmental responsibility, social responsibility and good governance into their operations. By collaborating with stakeholders across the economy, we support the transition towards a sustainable society.
