First bank with the status of “entreprise à mission”.
In 2020, Crédit Mutuel Alliance Fédérale has adopted a raison d'être in line with its values: Together, listen and act.
It has become the first bank to be granted mission-oriented status, following a participatory process involving mutualist elected representatives and employees.
