Asian Credit Unions Join the Campaign #Coops4ClimateAction
- Date : Thursday June 11, 2020
- Venue :
On June 11, ACCU organized the CEOs consultation workshop to validate the practicality of the new Credit Union Business Solution no. 26 – Climate Action Recommendation for Credit Unions. The solution is an evolving guide of programs credit unions can implement for members, institution and community.
To ensure the sustainability of the programs, ACCU suggests the programs should be institutionalized. It is hoped that by adding the 6th C of credit – Climate Compliance, the sustainability of implementation can be addressed.
The Asian credit union system is a strong force of 36 million individual members from 22 countries. Educating members of credit unions on how to care for the environment and mitigate climate change would be a great contribution to the campaign of Coops4ClimateAction – the theme for the 2020 International Cooperative Day, according to ACCU CEO. Meanwhile, an online trainers training is scheduled on July 1-3, 2020.
