Being a responsible corporate citizen is part of our DNA at KeyBank. It is who we are and how we do business, and this includes how we are contributing to the greater good of our planet. Key is the number two provider of renewable energy financing in North America and we’ve made $5.2 billion in investments in renewable energy. We proudly announced the expansion of our National Community Benefits Plan to $40 billion, which includes $4 billion in renewable energy financing and accelerating efforts to reduce our environmental footprint. We support sustainability through our green buildings, and we’re committed to reducing our carbon emissions by 40% by 2030 and 80% by 2050.

Key now operates over 2 million square feet of LEED-certified space, including 50 percent of corporate facilities. In 2018, Key diverted 48 percent of company waste from landfills and reduced paper usage by 45.1 tons, approximately 9 million sheets. In 2019 alone, Key reduced energy use by 8%.

From retail and commercial banking products in Key Community Bank, to investment products in Key Private Bank, equipment financing through Key Equipment Finance, and lending and capital investments through KeyBanc Capital Markets®, KeyBank is committed to sustainability.
