FEBEA set itself the task of developing the ethical and social finance in Europe. Through the activities of its members and its own initiatives, FEBEA defends a committed, rigorous and ambitious vision of ethical and social finance. The Federation supports social finance, social economy entrepreneurs and all citizens and groups who work for the development of a fairer, more sustainable and more inclusive society.
To this end, the Federation has therefore set concrete objectives:
- support the exchange of information and experiences and cooperation between national networks and social economy and finance practitioners in Europe and in the European free trade area;
- represent its members at the EU institutions and the financial and political organizations and leverage different political levels and European institutions;
- concretely support the efforts of its members, including in the creation of banking and financial instruments that are necessary to accomplish their goals. For this purpose, FEBEA has created a financial cooperative, SEFEA, as well as a set of social financial tools managed by its members to promote the emergence of these new alternative finance initiatives.
