EY and the EBF are working together with European banking associations and their member banks to enable inclusive long-term value for banks, businesses and citizens and respond to the challenges and opportunities in an increasingly complex and uncertain world.

This collaboration sees EY and the EBF convening conversations and sharing insights with the members and member banks across three areas of growing strategic importance:

  • Managing volatility and building resilience: Creating the opportunity for thought-provoking dialogue by gathering banking leaders from across Europe to share market insights, learn from the experiences of others and move forward collectively to manage risk and address common challenges in uncertain times.
  • Sustainable banking: Delivering impactful guidance to help banks to navigate through increasing complexity in Sustainable Finance.
  • Diversity and Inclusion (D&I): Exploring the role of banks as employers and agents of change in society to advance the D&I agenda. 

A healthy, principled and inclusive banking sector is vital to enable inclusive long-term value for banks, businesses and citizens. This knowledge collaboration creates a powerful opportunity for sector members to work together to strengthen banking and maximize its contribution towards the European economic recovery.
