“During 2021, we undertook a review of Charity Bank’s vision, mission and values statements in consultation with a range of stakeholders, including shareholders, board directors, our co-workers and our customers,” said the bank’s chief executive Ed Siegel/
“These refreshed declarations serve to sharpen our focus on positive social change as Charity Bank’s primary motivation.
“The addition of ‘healthy planet’ to our vision statement is worthy of note. Climate change is possibly the greatest social challenge facing our society today; therefore, a healthy planet merits explicit mention as one of our core aspirations.”
