“Impact” seems to find itself at the head of many investment product titles. Financial institutions are quickly learning that their customers increasingly care more about the impact investments have on the environment and broader society.

As 2019 comes to an end, there is a lot to celebrate at Amalgamated Bank. One bright spot we'd like to highlight is the addition of five new commercial bankers who are bringing an enhanced focus on the Bank’s social justice mission and deep expertise to our clients.

Does it really matter if a bank is socially responsible?  Who cares what the bank does with your money, just as long as it is there when you need it?  We care. At Amalgamated Bank, we believe banking – and the entire financial sector for that matter – must be responsible for its social and environmental impact. 

With the 2020 democratic presidential primary growing more crowded by the day, the progressive policy agenda will be on full display as candidates look to carve their own lanes to the Oval Office. One area that will undoubtedly garner considerable attention, and rightfully so, is how each candidate plans to address the growing threat of climate change.

Our team is comprised of nonprofit board members, former labor organizers and community activists. We are dedicated to advancing progressive causes and advocating for social and economic justice.
