From the Fifth Third 2020 ESG Report: Alignment to United Nations Goals

--News Direct--

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and improve the lives and prospects of everyone, everywhere. The 17 goals were adopted by all UN member states in 2015 as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which set out a 15-year plan to achieve the goals.

Fifth Third believes it has a role to play in all 17 UN goals. However, the Bank has identified 12 that align especially well with its ESG priorities and has formulated strategies and actions to make progress on these 12 goals:

1. No Poverty

2. Zero Hunger

3. Good Health and Well-Being

4. Quality Education

5. Gender Equality

6. Clean Water and Sanitation

7. Affordable and Clean Energy

8. Decent Work and Economic Growth

10. Reduced Inequality

12. Responsible Consumption and Production

13. Climate Action

17. Partnership for the Goals.

More about the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals can be found in Fifth Third Bank’s 2020 Environmental, Social and Governance Report on page 4. Fifth Third published its 2020 ESG Report on June 30, 2021.
