Climate First Bank
The Florida-based bank is now equipped with a mobile banking app, a redesigned website and digital contactless payments
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., March 21, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Climate First Bank — the world’s first FDIC-insured community bank established to combat the climate crisis — today announces new accessible and sustainable banking options. These include a mobile banking application, a redesigned website, and compatibility features for Apple and Android Pay. The robust array of Climate First Bank technology empowers users to buy, rent and save on the go with the touch of their mobile device.
Climate First Bank has launched an improved mobile banking application for account holders. The updated application provides a transparent overview of account balances and recent transactions, and allows users to track a budget, transfer money and pay bills – all of which make for a streamlined banking experience. An impact banking tool powered by Ecountabl technology is slated for release next year, allowing customers to see how their savings are making an impact and allowing them to spend with companies aligned with their values. Climate First Bank’s personal and business applications are available in the iOS and Android app stores.
Climate First Bank account holders can now also use Apple Pay and Android Pay as payment options. Apple Pay and Android Pay allow users to make mobile payments in stores via NFC and Touch ID technology, eliminating the need for a plastic card, in line with the bank’s plastic reduction mission.
Finally, the values-based bank completely revamped their website to make it user-friendly and easy to navigate. For those looking for desktop banking or more information, the update now includes redesigned pages for personal and corporate banking, as well as sustainable credit options. All of this and more meets consumer expectations for an omnichannel banking experience.
The story goes on
“We are improving the online banking experience and working to make ethical and sustainable banking more accessible to Americans,” said CEO and Founder Ken LaRoe. “Moving to Climate First Bank is one of the easiest ways anyone can reduce their carbon emissions. Compatibility with these payment options was just the natural next step for us.”
