What does “sustainability” mean for credit unions? It’s not just solar lending and green branches, although those do play a role at some shops. Sustainability means serving members today, tomorrow, and into the future.

Credit unions are embracing their purpose and making values a cornerstone of their strategy. It’s possible to do well while doing good, and this Callahan Collection spotlights credit unions that are combining profit, passion, and the pursuit of happiness to achieve long-term sustainability.
