The comment below makes a good point. A bank's org structure should clearly delineate the "responsible loans" group as distinct from the "irresponsible loans" group. Maybe the rating agencies will give diversity score credit when the responsible and irresponsible loans are mingled within a single portfolio. (sarcasm warning)

If Credit Agricole sells its ethical loans, is what's left a "bad bank"?
