As a member-owned bank, profit has a purpose. Doing business ethically and sustainably is at the heart of every decision we make, and action we take.
By operating responsibly, we’re able to channel part of our income into doing good while building a new type of wealth. One that gives back.
Feel-Good Wealth means that you can focus on your financial goals, without damaging the planet and the people on it.
So, you’ll always feel good about opening a bank account with strict ethical rules, taking a home loan with money screened to exclude polluting industries, or knowing your money profits your community.
It’s all part of our commitment to being a world leading socially responsible bank.
