As one of the world's leading financial institutions, JPMorgan Chase recognizes that economic growth and rising living standards fundamentally rely on the abundance and vitality of the planet's resources and ecosystems. Supporting a more environmentally sustainable global economy is a challenge with real implications for every sector of modern society, including financial services.
Acknowledging this, JPMorgan Chase is employing its knowledge and capital to help the clients, customers and the communities it serves to respond to the environmental sustainability challenge, while helping our clients take advantage of the business opportunities created by the transition to a more sustainable global economy. We are also managing the environmental impact of the use of resources in our own operations.
