Choosing a greener, more ethical bank account for your church
Want to switch to a bank that aligns more closely with your church’s values and mission? Looking to green your finances as part of your church’s climate action?
This newly updated guide compares 4 of the more ethical bank accounts suitable for churches and charities.
We look at CAF Bank, the Co-operative Bank, Reliance Bank and Unity Trust Bank.
NB: We haven’t included Triodos as they don’t currently offer business/charity accounts. They remain a green, ethical option for individuals.
Many of the UK’s big High Street banks – like Barclays, HSBC, Lloyds and NatWest – are involved in financing fossil fuels, nuclear weapons and deforestation. You may also have concerns around customer service, tax avoidance practices or excessive executive pay.
However, there are a growing number of greener, fairer banks that put people and planet first. There are banks that choose to invest positively in local communities and that understand the needs of churches and charities.
Download your copy of the Greener, Fairer Banking Guide and be part of a movement of churches switching to a greener, fairer bank.
Get in touch if you have any questions or would like support in discussing ethical banking with your church. We would also welcome your feedback on the resource.
