In 2018, the Edinburgh Finance Declaration was launched by UKIFC in collaboration with GEFI and the Church of Scotland after a three-year dialogue. The Edinburgh Finance Declaration is a ray of hope in a world where economic systems frequently put financial gain ahead of morality. By working together, these institutions strive to promote financial integrity, responsible investment, and economic justice.
In this article, we look at the six shared values in operation in both Islam and Christianity which the Declaration identifies as providing an ethical framework. They are – Stewardship, Love of the Neighbour, Human Flourishing, Sustainability & Purposefulness, Justice & Equity and the Common Good.
