The Caisse d'Epargne de Bourgogne Franche-Comté, a regional cooperative banking institution, takes advantage of its robust financial position to pursue an ambitious and responsible development strategy at the service of all its different types of clientele.
Building on the strength of its long-standing values – that are shared by its cooperative shareholders and given expression in its status as a mutual bank – the Caisse d’Epargne de Bourgogne Franche-Comté works closely with all its customer categories comprised of private individuals, professionals, companies, the local public sector, entities active in the social and solidarity-based economy, and real-estate professionals.
Enjoying strong roots in its catchment area, the Caisse d'Epargne de Bourgogne Franche-Comté is constantly innovating to align its range of products and services with the needs of its specialized types of clientele. At the heart of a world-renowned wine-growing region, the Caisse d’Epargne de Bourgogne Franche-Comté many years ago created Vitibanque, a department specifically devoted to the wine industry. This individual industry approach has now been extended to include other business areas, notably the healthcare and medical/social sectors through its Health Experts Division. It also supports the many competitiveness clusters contributing to the dynamism of the local economy.
As a socially committed bank, the Caisse d'Epargne de Bourgogne Franche-Comté actively supports the environmental transition. This commitment finds expression in an ambitious CSR policy rolled out within the bank, in its role as a socially responsible company and, in its activities with its customers, as a sustainable banker.
A strong local presence and quality of service are the twin driving forces behind its development, based on the expertise of its 1,600 employees working through a network of 182 branches and 4 business centers to make it the benchmark local bank useful to its territory and to local residents.
Sport & Patronage
Building on its strong regional presence and cooperative values, the Caisse d'Epargne de Bourgogne Franche-Comté supports local sporting talent. This commitment is currently reflected in its sponsorship of 7 athletes within the framework of the Pacte Utile (‘Useful Pact’) program.
As a major player in sponsorship and patronage, the Group has been supporting iconic regional sports clubs for many years – JDA, ELAN, DFCO, AJA, USON, ESBF, etc. – that help to enhance the region’s reputation beyond its borders and play a major social role thanks to their support for athletes in their professional transition. More generally, it also finances numerous local sporting facilities to promote easier access to sport.
The Caisse d'Epargne de Bourgogne Franche-Comté is also a corporate patron and talent scout, supporting local artists and a large number of cultural events, such as the Festival D'Jazz à Nevers. Every two years, it provides young students at the Dijon School of Music with a cello crafted by a local instrument maker.
