The Tonbridge-based Charity Bank has been awarded top spot in the index of ethical banks and business societies for the ninth successive year.
Research by The Good Shopping Guide, found that the bank, based in Fosse House in the High Street, achieved a perfect score of 100 – far surpassing typical high street banks in terms of social and environmental responsibility.
It was only one of 11 companies in the UK who achieved the maximum rating.
A bank spokesperson said: “We’re a bank that doesn’t pay bonuses.
“We use the money our savers entrust to us to make loans to charities and social enterprises. In short, we’re a bank for people who don’t just dream of a better world, but are busy building one.”
