Merkur Cooperative Bank is a Danish values based bank that combines classical banking with a vision of a sustainable society. In order to move towards a sustainable society we have lending criteria that include environmental, social and ethical aspects in addition to financial considerations.
Our main objectives are:
- to give and facilitate financial advice and financing to profit making enterprises within sustainable production and not-for-profit institutions and associations within cultural and social fields.
- to lend to and arrange mortgages for individual customers and to provide these customers with financial services that reflect our vison of a sustainable society.
The main part of Merkur Cooperative Bank´s combined loans are in the environmentally oriented businesses as well as in social and cultural sectors.
Transparency is key. Therefore, you can see all our lending business and not–for profit clients on a map with a small description for each, at www.minepengegørgavn.dk (“my money does good”). The site is in Danish only.
Merkur Cooperative Bank was founded in 1982. Today Merkur is present in the four biggest cities of Denmark, which are Copenhagen, Aalborg, Aarhus and Odense. At the end of 2014, the bank had more than 23,000 clients and more than 5,000 co-operative members.
