Our Commitment to Sustainable Development

JPMorgan Chase is committed to creating a more sustainable future for the employees, customers and communities it serves. That’s why we’re taking additional steps to address climate change and further promote sustainable development. In 2020, we commit to facilitate $200 billion to advance the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, including $50 billion toward green initiatives that also fulfill our 2017 clean financing target.

This new commitment is intended to address a broader set of challenges in the developing world and developed countries where social and economic development gaps persist. We aim to increase our sustainable development financing commitment each year.

In 2020, the firm commits to facilitate $200 billion for efforts focused on the following objectives:

Our Operational Impact

100%

Renewable Energy by 2020

Minimizing the environmental impact of our physical operations continues to be an important part of our global sustainability strategy. In addition to reducing energy consumption by implementing energy-efficient lighting and other technologies, we are undertaking a range of actions to increase our support for renewable energy, including: 

  • Installing on-site renewable energy at retail branches and commercial buildings; 
  • Executing Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) and green power supply contracts to support the development of new renewable energy projects on grids from which we purchase energy; and 
  • Purchasing Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) to green our electricity supply.
