May 9, 2013 /3BL Media/ - Vancity’s 2012 Annual Report—The Vancity Effect—illustrates Vancity’s financial, social and environmental performance and impact, explaining how the credit union translates millions of dollars of credit, grants and shared profits into positive outcomes for members and communities. This is Vancity’s third fully integrated annual report. It provides an overview of Vancity’s sustainable business strategy, which eliminates the need for a separate sustainability strategy. It also summarizes strategic risks and opportunities, progress made on 19 targets and commitments, and provides links to stories and videos that illustrate the positive community impact Vancity helps create. Key results for 2012 include:

  • Assets grew by $0.9 billion dollars to $17.1 billion due to healthy loan growth
  • Employee engagement scores jumped five points to 76 per cent
  • 4.5 per cent of eligible members voted in its Board Director elections
  • Of net new investments made by members and clients, 16 per cent were in socially responsible options
  • Greenhouse gas emissions increased slightly and Vancity did not meet its aggressive reduction target
