Want to make the world of finance more sustainable?

With a close-knit team of nine employees, the non-profit organisation Forum Ethibel challenges current standards in terms of sustainable investment and sustainable behavior in the (social) economy.

We strengthen transparency, social responsibility and sustainability. As an independent player, we have been providing consulting, verification and certification services since 1992, both in the financial world and in the (social) economy. Knowledge development is part of our DNA: we conduct research, share ideas and best practices with different stakeholders and raise awareness among the general public. Within the financial sector, Forum Ethibel is generally recognized as a reference, in particular thanks to our annual ERSIS study.

As an independent, not-for-profit organization, we are in a unique position. Impact in a rapidly evolving sector is our motivation. This is why we want to continue to innovate in the sustainable finance sector.
