Since its creation, participation and democracy have been the basis of the cooperative operation of Crédit Mutuel. These core values are as strategic as the quality of its services. In France, Crédit Mutuel’s first caisse was created in 1882 in La Wantzenau, near Strasbourg, on the banking model designed by Frédéric-Guillaume Raiffeisen (1818-1888) in the Rhineland.
130 years later, Crédit Mutuel is one of the leading banking players in Europe. Among the 18 Federations of Crédit Mutuel, 11 of them have come together to pool their strengths and pool their resources. Crédit Mutuel Alliance Fédérale is made up of the Crédit Mutuel Federations of Central East Europe, South-East, Île-de-France, Savoie-Mont Blanc, Midi-Atlantic, Center, Loire-Atlantique and Center-West, Normandy, Mediterranean, Dauphiné- Vivarais and Anjou.
The Bank implements its sustainable development approach in accordance with the founding values of Crédit Mutuel and taking into account the businesses and territories.
The group, faithful to the cooperative values, consolidates initiatives taken locally and regionally and supports the priorities of each caisse in terms of societal and environmental commitment.
In the end, the group pays particular attention to:
1. The exercise of its business in the interest of its members and customers
2. The vitality of its mode of governance
3. Respect for our world in its human dimensions and environmental
4. In the implementation of the conditions necessary for the fulfillment of its employees
With different words, it is these four dimensions of our CSR that each group company implements, as illustrated below, in a non-exhaustive way.
