Solidarity Banker: a volunteering programme for the employees of Crédit Agricole
Many Crédit Agricole Group employees volunteer for solidarity projects. To support this dynamic, the Group launched "CA Solidaires", a programme that promotes employee commitment to projects with positive social impact. It is within this framework that a new commitment scheme is now proposed to the group's employees: Solidarity Leaves. On the initiative of the Grameen Crédit Agricole Foundation and Crédit Agricole SA, skill-based voluntary missions carrying the "Banquier Solidaire" label are proposed to employees on behalf of microfinance institutions or "social business" companies, partners of the Foundation.
This is a unique partnership in the history of Crédit Agricole and the Grameen Crédit Agricole Foundation. With “Banquier Solidaire”, the Group and the Foundation are capitalising on their synergies and stepping up their action in favour of sustainable finance. The objective is to provide additional advice and guidance for the microfinance and social businesses supported by the Foundation via pro bono missions carried out by the staff of the Crédit Agricole Group. Three missions have already been carried out in Burkina Faso, Senegal and Cambodia. Three other missions will be launched in Kazakhstan and Haiti.
