Crédit Coopératif

Thanks to its humanistic and ecological values, and the solutions it designs to ensure money remains a socially useful tool, it boasts a unique status in the banking community.

It is in its capacity as a banker that Crédit Coopératif defines its strategy for future action, constantly inventing new tools to finance an economy at the service of human well-being and to prove that it's possible to do banking in another way.

125 years of cooperation in favor of the cooperative movement and its customers.

Our fellow citizens are looking for a socially responsible bank and ‘meaningful finance’ that is answerable to them about resources and jobs
Jean-Louis Bancel — Chairman

Crédit Coopératif is the bank for those who have decided to take a different approach to business development, to develop another type of economy and build another future.

For its customers/citizens

Thanks to the innovative products designed by Crédit Coopératif, our customers/citizens can take control of how their money is used by supporting projects developed by individuals and entities working to develop a more equitable and greener world. By holding income-sharing products, traced products, or "products of influence", they become actively involved in a more socially committed type of finance.

For the social and institutional economy

Crédit Coopératif’s active involvement in the voluntary sector (associations), public interest bodies, and players active in the fields of culture, social & professional insertion, education, trade unions, the local & regional economy, etc. derives from the realization that these sectors represent a long-neglected reserve of creative energy, a real economic and social force turned towards the future. Helping these entities to develop their activities, encouraging their dynamism, supporting their transformation is the role that Crédit Coopératif has given itself: to promote finance that is beneficial to all.

For companies active in the real economy

When you are convinced that the cooperative model can transform the life of a whole region, when you understand how much small and medium-sized businesses contribute to GNP growth, when you realize that the development of organic food, fair trade, and renewable energy are vital opportunities… it means that you belong to the community of men and women who have decided to adopt a different approach to business, along with Crédit Coopératif: for a different kind of economy, and for a different future.

For protected adults and their legal representatives

Committed to a kind of finance that leaves no one behind, Crédit Coopératif is actively committed to the fight against exclusion, notably in favor of those who support the most vulnerable members of our society. In the case of customers under legal guardianship, the drive to promote banking inclusion finds expression in a specific offer for protected individuals and active collaboration with guardians’ associations and legal representatives for the protection of adults.

Crédit Coopératif

The power of “us” (Le pouvoir du nous)

Two years after the launch of its new corporate signature – “Another bank is possible” – Crédit Coopératif is asserting its role and social utility among a wider audience.

This campaign reminds the public that the combined strength of many is far greater than that of individual initiatives. Through the tagline “The power of us”, Crédit Coopératif expresses its dedication to social commitment and the militant optimism that it shares with its customers.
