"A company should be a good steward of society"

How Bank of America creates shared success with clients and communities—and a better world

About Bank of America's environmental, social and governance efforts

We know the path to long-term success—for our company as well as the people, businesses and communities we serve—is to use our resources to address today’s current challenges. These range from climate change to access to financial capital for small businesses. We also want to make sure we’re supporting our employees who make this work happen every day.

As a result of our ESG efforts, we’ve:

—Delivered nearly $50 billion over the last four years toward our goal of providing $125 billion for low-carbon energy and sustainability projects by 2025. We do this through lending, investing, raising capital and developing financial tools and solutions for clients across the globe.

—Invested more than $1 billion in more than 200 Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs), which provide access to needed capital for businesses and organizations that might otherwise have trouble securing it.

—Expanded benefits for our own employees, raising the minimum wage to $15 per hour and extending our paid leave policy for all new parents to 16 weeks.

As a global financial institution, we believe that our ESG-focused business practices enable us to address some of the largest challenges facing the country and the world while also growing our business – and the global economy.
