Banking and finance as a profession have an intrinsic value chain which is interwoven
with the cycle of providing adequate financial products and services. As long as there are
no bank guidelines or criteria on ethical, social and sustainability aspects, the individual
co-worker or the lending committee are generally applying the ‘neutrality rule’,
excluding ethical, social and environmental considerations from the bankers´ decision
making. In reality however, money is not neutral and it involves responsibilities from its
inception and along the distribution chain where it has to do with value creation, not only
pure financial value but also human, social and environmental added values.
