As part of BNY Mellon's global initiative to raise awareness of food security and waste, R. Jeep Bryant, executive vice president for marketing and corporate affairs, shares his thoughts on the issues. This is the first in a four-part series.

Why We’re Invested in Feeding the Hungry

At BNY Mellon, we’ve given a lot of thought to what it means to be an investments company. The answer, for us, is simple – it means we’re committed to helping our clients succeed. That’s what drives us. But we also have other responsibilities, ones we take just as seriously that fall outside a balance sheet.

We have a social responsibility to be invested in the world, which means that we’re committed to making local communities better places to live and work and that we contribute to solutions for the world’s most pressing issues. It means we care about people having homes and jobs, and about them having clothes and enough to eat.

Hunger, in particular, is an issue that has resonated across our company. Last year alone, together with our employees, we contributed the equivalent of 6 million meals to food related charities around the world.  And we’ve learned a lot along the way.
