We are delighted to launch our Green Finance Tartan. Tartan is recognised globally as a symbol of Scottish culture and traditions. Every tartan tells a story, and the Green Finance Tartan tells the story of sustainable finance in Scotland. This is a story that begins a new chapter this year, when Glasgow hosts the United Nations Climate Change Conference - COP26.
Together, the Chartered Banker Institute and our members are proud of the professionalism we bring to banking around the world, and of the contribution we are making individually and collectively to a sustainable banking profession and a more sustainable world.
The Green Finance Tartan is woven in Scotland by Kinloch Anderson, tailors and kiltmakers to Her Majesty the Queen. Like the Chartered Banker Institute, Kinloch Anderson are committed to sustainability and commit to making conscious decisions that contribute to a more sustainable future, with the mindset of green innovation and sustainable product development. The Institute will donate all proceeds from tartan sales to the 2025 Foundation. Products will be available to buy later on this year.
Hear from our CEO, Simon Thompson, about the Green Finance Tartan.
“The Chartered Banker Institute’s Green Finance Tartan is a striking representation of sustainable finance in Scotland, and will be on prominent display at COP 26. It also symbolises the Institute’s proud Scottish heritage, and our commitment to socially purposeful, responsible banking that recognises our stewardship of the environment and creates shared prosperity for all. Proceeds from the Green Finance Tartan will support the Institute’s 2025 Foundation, creating opportunities for future generations. So by wearing the Green Finance Tartan, you can look good, and do good at the same time!”
