These two priorities allow SIDI to remain in permanent dialogue with partner organisations. 

SIDI thus promotes a form of finance that serves integral, socially just and ecologically sustainable development, based on the values of solidarity, trust, ethics and transparency. Its shareholders, both private individuals and institutions, give it the means to implement projects and they expect nothing but human, social and environmental gains in return.
