Investing in Environmental Solutions for Stronger Communities

At Wells Fargo, we believe when our communities do well, we do well. We recognize that our environmental impact goes beyond how we operate. As a financial services company, we can influence positive change by:

Encouraging Stronger Communities: "Where We Live"

Accelerating a "Greener" Economy: "Where We Do Business"

Reducing the Environmental Impact of Our Operations: "Where We Work"

In approaching our responsibility, Wells Fargo seeks to ensure that as we do business, natural resources are protected and environmental, social and economic needs are part of our everyday decisions. In this integrated approach to sustainability, we are committed to finding new ways to minimize our energy consumption, address climate change, use renewable sources, and inspire others to do the same so we can lower our impact on the planet.
