Banks have influence over society in many subtle ways, more than many of us realize. Through low-cost loans and other favorable financial products, many banks have directly propped up companies that most of us would never consider supporting on a personal level. And yet we are doing just that by keeping our money in these legacy institutions.
Think about it: Do you really know what your bank does with your money? The truth is that banks’ widespread support of the world’s biggest social and environmental justice offenders actually far exceeds support for a clean and more equitable tomorrow. How are we as a society supposed to address and improve upon serious systemic issues when institutionalized practices and the flow of capital through the economy are working against those very interests?
The existing banking industry lags behind the evolving values of society and keeps us rooted in the past. Atmos was created to provide customers direct access to building the tomorrow they want to see.
