At the Co-operative Bank, we have always been driven by something different: an ethical approach to banking.
In 2017, we marked the 25th anniversary of our Ethical Policy. Since 1992, we have worked together to tackle the things that matter to you. From climate change to human rights. And while a lot has changed in that time, we're as committed as ever to:
By listening to what our customers have to say, we can focus on the things they care about - and make sure their values and ethics run through everything we do: from the charities we support, and even the products we offer. In 2016, through charity partnerships linked to some of our products, our customers helped us to raise nearly £1 million for some great causes.
We're also investing £1 million in The Hive, a business support programme set up in partnership with Co-operatives UK, which helps brand-new start up co-operative businesses to thrive - and existing ones to grow.
We have a long history of campaigning with our colleagues and customers on the issues that matter most to them. Together we've made a real difference campaigning to abolish landmines and for strong and effective climate change legislation.
At The Co-operative Bank, we've always shared our customer's passion for values and ethics. We're the only high street bank with a customer-led Ethical Policy that gives you a voice - so you can make a difference too.
