Working with Decision-Makers
The EACB supports a legislative and regulatory environment based on better regulation principles that fit and respect the co-operative banks business model. It voices the specificities of its members in order to enhance the diversity and the plurality of the European banking industry for the benefit of Europe's citizens and small businesses.
The EACB is fully committed to defending and promoting the unique qualities and values of the co-operative banks on behalf of its members. This is done in both European and international institutions. Policy makers and regulators recognized the official voice of co-operative banks at European and International levels. Members trust the Association to defend their interests and this is the binding principle that drives the activities of the Secretariat and member representatives of the various EACB bodies. This mutual trust is a key component of lobbying efforts.
