Our Dedication to Giving Back

As America’s largest B Corp. certified bank and a proud member of the Global Alliance for Banking on Values, we dedicate our time, energy and attention on doing the most good for the most people.

  • Our Political Action Committee (PAC) supports only those politicians who align with our values.

Five Principles of Responsible Banking

As the country’s leading progressive bank, we are proud to abide by our Five Principles of Responsible Banking. These principles expound our core beliefs: advocating true financial opportunity for all, supporting sensible regulation that engenders consumer confidence, and welcoming corporate standards for accountability and transparency.

corporate and social responsibility

It seems every day there’s another big corporation in the news for flagrantly violating the public’s trust—whether it’s failing to protect consumers’ health, safety or privacy, putting bogus transactions or accounts on the books, or neglecting environmental hazards in favor of the heedless pursuit of profits and shareholder returns.

Sustainability and a commitment to protecting the environment are important to Amalgamated Bank and the communities we serve. So, it was natural for us to testify last month before the Council of the District of Columbia to support the Green Finance Authority Establishment Act, which would bolster financial support for sustainability programs in Washington D.C.
