Summit organizers say credit unions, because of their community focus, are in a unique position to make a difference and build more climate resilient, economically-empowered and inclusive communities. Topics covered included making sustainability a strategic priority, green solutions, and financial inclusion.

More than 100 credit unions actively participate in the United in Sustainability (UIS) Network which was founded by UNFCU to provide credit unions with tools and resources to advance sustainable development goals.
