A socially committed cooperative bank… and proud of it!
Crédit Coopératif, a bank enjoying benchmark status for entities in the social and solidarity-based economy, for enterprises in the ‘real’ economy, and for citizens sharing the same humanist vision of the world and society, stands committed with its customers/cooperative shareholders to building an economic environment that is more equitable, more solidarity-based, more locally present, and more respectful of the natural environment.
Driven by its pioneering and trailblazing spirit, Crédit Coopératif stands for patient, transparent and socially-committed finance that gives its customers the power to act individually and collectively in favor of social housing, the dissemination of culture, the promotion of education and research, social integration, the consideration of disabilities, international solidarity, renewable energy sources, cooperative businesses, etc.
As a player in the real economy, the bank pays 99% of its taxes in France. Its ethical code means that it rejects the use of tax havens. Crédit Coopératif excludes certain industrial sectors from its financing – such as fossil fuels or the arms industry – which are in opposition to its corporate purpose. Yes, it’s perfectly possible to do banking in another way!
More than 130 years of cooperation in favor of the cooperative movement and its customers.
The bank belongs to its customers/cooperative shareholders.
1 person = 1 vote
The vote of each cooperative shareholder has the same value, irrespective of the number of shares he or she may own.
