Creating, helping, developing… innovation and cooperation have been part of the Group’s gene pool since its foundation. A look at six Group projects.

Help though all life’s ups and downs

Crédit Agricole’s Regional Banks set up the ‘Points Passerelle’ network over 10 years ago. Their aim is to help and support people trying to overcome personal difficulties and to avoid social exclusion. Thanks to volunteer advisers and helpers, the scheme gives tailored support to 9,000 people every year.

Developing start-ups

With ‘Village by CA’, located in central Paris, the Crédit Agricole Group has created a shared space for creation and innovation in supporting young ground-breaking companies in their development. This innovative form of cooperation is spreading through the Group, from Lille to New York.

Facilitating internal mobility

With 140,000 employees in 54 countries, internal mobility is a big advantage in creating synergies between business lines. The Crédit Agricole Group was the first company in France to offer its staff a mobile app that enables them to manage their mobility from their smartphones.

Co-creating innovative apps

Crédit Agricole Store is the first-ever platform for co-creating and downloading banking apps. It puts app developers and creators in touch with customers seeking innovative, high-performance solutions for their banking services. This French initiative has received several international awards.

Responsibility in an everyday object

As a committed player concerned about its impact on the environment, the Group has sought an innovative approach to its bank cards. These everyday, favoured means of payment have an ecological footprint because of their plastic and metallic components. The Group has therefore launched a 100% plant-based bank card using non-GM corn starch. Moreover, Crédit Agricole Regional Banks started recycling used cards in 2013. More than 2.7 million cards have already been collected.
