Changing banking for a better future

What makes us different?

At AretiBank we support the vision that prosperity and well-being for all, within the Earth’s ecological limits, is possible through the sustainable development pathways expressed in the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

We believe that financial institutions must contribute significantly to achieving a sustainable economy.  Given our role of intermediaries and the resulting influence on other industries, we are committed on putting our mission into action by aligning financial support to the SDGs and promoting sustainability across industries, sectors, and communities.

Putting our mission into action

To comply our mission, Areti Bank has a positive approach to invest, finance or lend only on and sectors that contribute to generate positive impacts to people and the environment. To do so, we have a strategy based in four areas:

Sustainable energy

To meet the goals of the Paris Agreement we need to decarbonize large swathes of the global economy.

Green consumerism

People have an extraordinary power for change in their purchasing decisions.

Cleaner production

Transforming consumption and production patterns towards sustainability requires shifting financial flows from brown to green.

Sustainable investing

Connecting financial returns with environmental, social and governance performance (ESG).

What does your bank do with your money?

Our business model is focused on activities and sectors that generate positive impacts on people and the environment. With this focus in mind, we have developed a strategy based on four Business Pillars:

Sustainable Energy

When you open an account with us, you become an integral part of driving the renewable energy movement and shaping the future. Join us in creating a better world for all by making renewable energy the easy choice for everyone.

To meet the goals of the Paris Agreement we need to decarbonize large swathes of the global economy. Massive flows of finance are needed to accelerate renewable energy use and production. More investment in renewables would reduce energy-related carbon emissions, a key element in efforts to limit global warming. Our mission is making the transition from fossil to clean and renewable energy easy and affordable. We believe that opportunities in funding energy efficiency existin in a wide variety of industrial and retail segments as infrastructure, manufacturing, housing, building maintenance, rural and urban.

Cleaner Production

At Areti Bank we support businesses and initiatives that include environmental technology, such as recycling and clean energy production.

We are aware that transforming consumption and production patterns towards sustainability requires shifting financial flows from brown to green. As regulatory frameworks continue to emerge, the demand for the equipment and financing of clean production process improvements will grow exponentially in the years to come; we want to contribute to accelerate the change.

Cleaner production is an integrated strategy to maximize benefits by making more efficient use of natural resources (materials, energy, or water) in manufacturing and service industries, while minimizing waste and emissions.

Green Consumerism

Economic change always starts with the customer demanding change. We believe that a sustainable economy requires changes in the way we consume.  People have extraordinary power for change in their purchasing decisions.

At AretiBank we promote “green consumerism” as a way of creating a balance between consumers and businesses, within the context of environmental protection. We promote green consumerism because it will shape new trends of consumption, more responsible for people and the environment.

Just Life

Just Life represents our belief that a sustainable and equitable world requires addressing social and economic disparities alongside environmental concerns. It encompasses our efforts to promote fair opportunities, equal access, and improved quality of life for all individuals and communities
