Advancing Environmental Sustainability

Promoting environmental sustainability is good for Citi and our clients around the world. This belief, reflected in our dedication to 1) reducing our operational footprint, 2) actively managing environmental and social risks, and 3) financing environmental business opportunities, is fundamentally tied to our overall strategy of creating the best outcomes for our clients and customers with financial solutions that are simple, creative and responsible. While we categorize our environmental sustainability actions into these three areas, our approach is integrated. Our work in each area informs our actions and highlights emerging risks and opportunities across the board. We also align our environmental and business goals, enabling us to take a more comprehensive and holistic approach when anticipating and tackling challenges faced by our clients.
