Global Strength, Local Impact: JPMorgan Chase & Co 2013 Corporate Responsibility Report
JPMorgan Chase & Co. is pleased to share with you its 2013 Corporate Responsibility Report. The report highlights a number of the initiatives we undertook last year to address economic, social and environmental challenges here in the United States and around the world.
This year’s report features conversations among some of the firm’s key partners, stakeholders and executives. They discuss their perspectives on these challenges and how the private, public and nonprofit sectors can work together to help create opportunities for more people, preserve our natural environment and foster the fundamental conditions for widely-shared prosperity.
The report includes an exclusive dialogue between our Chairman and CEO Jamie Dimon and Walter Isaacson, President and CEO of the Aspen Institute, discussing issues that range from how society can increase access to economic opportunity to how JPMorgan Chase is rebuilding confidence in the company and capital markets.
In 2013, JPMorgan Chase launched New Skills at Work – our five-year, $250 million initiative – the largest-ever private sector commitment to address the global skills gap; worked with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to announce the Global Health Investment Fund, a $108 million innovative social impact fund that for the first time raised investment capital from a diverse investor base to address global health challenges in the developing world; and formed NatureVest, our collaboration with The Nature Conservancy to create a new platform to advance investment in conservation.
JPMorgan Chase continued to help strengthen communities where we and our customers live and work, revitalizing neighborhoods like Harlem in New York City and Bronzeville in Chicago, and promoting the financial capability of low- and moderate-income individuals by working with community development financial institutions and other partners like Cities for Financial Empowerment , Mission Asset Fund, MyBnk, Chulalongkorn University and The Townsend Thai Project.
In addition, Chase was named the #1 U.S. Small Business Administration lender for the fourth consecutive year and continued to support military servicemembers in the U.S. by hiring more than 6,300 veterans by the end of the year and continuing to lead the 100,000 Jobs Mission to double the hiring goal to 200,000 veterans by 2020.
