Banks, Ethics and Sustainability: ECCR annual Open Debate, 19 November, London


The financial and banking crisis exposed unacceptable risk-taking and short-termism in the banking sector. Some believe we also face a sustainability crisis in terms of the damaging projects that our banks invest in. Are our financial institutions on the right track? This year’s ECCR Open Debate, chaired by Lord Harries of Pentregath (former Bishop of Oxford), will address these concerns with panel speakers from HSBC (invited), Platform/BankTrack, Triodos Bank and the Church Investors Group. Thursday 19 November 2009, 4.30 to 6 pm, Friends House (Small Meeting House), 173 Euston Road, London NW1 2BJ. To book a place, please contact Miles Litvinoff (tel. 020 8965 9682).
