We believe that delivering shared value starts with sound governance practices, where our ESG-related risks and opportunities are overseen and managed in line with our broader business strategy.
At the same time, we understand that many of our customers are evaluating their own ESG-related risks and opportunities. So, for us, sharing value also means supporting our customers by providing products and services that align with their unique goals and strategies in these areas.
We view our associates as our most valuable assets, providing best-in-class advice, guidance, and education across all channels. For that reason, we look to build our best team: an informed, engaged workforce that is diverse like the communities we serve.
As a regional bank, the relationships we form with our surrounding communities are integral to fulfilling our mission and purpose. We seek to cultivate inclusive growth by investing in the development and financial wellness of the communities we serve.
