We aim to get strong investment returns for our members.  At the same time, though, we also invest to make a difference at a local level, through things like social housing and renewable energy.

We moved into new offices, known as ‘The Smart Building’, in 2022. They are operationally carbon-zero, powered entirely by electricity from renewable sources.
