impact investing

“Impact” seems to find itself at the head of many investment product titles. Financial institutions are quickly learning that their customers increasingly care more about the impact investments have on the environment and broader society.

Amalgamated Bank works hard every day to support the most powerful change makers in America. We have the honor of standing with thousands of leaders of social change – nonprofits, foundations, labor unions, and more - as they take on complex, deeply rooted issues affecting hundreds of millions of lives.

Amalgamated Bank history

Does it really matter if a bank is socially responsible?  Who cares what the bank does with your money, just as long as it is there when you need it?  We care. At Amalgamated Bank, we believe banking – and the entire financial sector for that matter – must be responsible for its social and environmental impact.

corporate and social responsibility

In strong job markets, such as the one we’re experiencing now, employers face the reality of a potentially fleeting workforce. An abundance of jobs, paired with the rise of transferable skills and the newfound mobility that workers enjoy, leaves companies with the task of continuously coming up with new and innovative ways to keep talent.
