BNY Mellon is committed to using our global reach, influence and resources not just to power success today, but to help safeguard the future. We aim to accelerate the evolution of ESG — on behalf of clients, investors, communities and all stakeholders — to make a positive impact on people and the planet.
In recognition of our increasing focus on Environmental, Social and Governances (ESG) considerations, we have transitioned from utilizing the Corporate Social Responsibility or CSR terminology, to “Enterprise ESG”, the namesake of this report.
BNY Mellon’s Enterprise ESG strategy is built on three pillars that correspond with what is currently most relevant to the company and our clients, employees, shareholders and communities: Culture and Purpose, Responsible Business and Global Citizenship. These pillars, and the dimensions within them, guide us in prioritizing how BNY Mellon integrates an ESG lens into our operations.
“2020 was a year that will forever have a profound effect on society as we consider the gravity of COVID-19 and social justice movements around the globe,” said Todd Gibbons, CEO of BNY Mellon. “As we look ahead to a sustainable future, it is essential that BNY Mellon uses its reach, market influence and resources to address these, and other pressing global ESG issues. We will continue to work towards ensuring we have a positive impact on society and the environment, and that we help our clients invest and operate responsibly.”
