Ethics in Action
As a Co-operative business, we believe in ethical values and in putting our money where our mouth is. We have worked on numerous campaigns and projects all over the world as we put our ethics into action to make a difference.
In 1992, The Co-operative Bank launched its Ethical Policy after customers said that they would like to see their money invested ethically. From day one, it was decided that the policy should reflect the ethical concerns of customers, not the management, on the basis that it is customers' money which is being invested.

In June 2005, The Co-operative Insurance became the world's first insurance company to launch a customer-led ethical policy to guide the social, ethical and environmental aspects of its investments. Find out more about the CIS ethical engagement policy.
