Our ESG philosophy

We make it our mission every day to contribute to a more equitable and sustainable world so everyone can achieve a brighter financial future.

Our commitments

Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DE&I).

We make DE&I a part of everything we do so our employees can thrive, and we can best serve our customers. 

Social Impact.

We use our full platform of jobs, products, business spend, philanthropy, and more to advance equity—and motivate others to effect change. 

Environmental Sustainability.

We contribute to a more sustainable world through resource conservation and the reduction of our operational impact.


We commit to “Doing the Right Thing” by being transparent, accountable, and ethical in everything we do.

We believe talent has been evenly distributed in our country, but opportunity has not—and all companies have a role to play in addressing inequity.

Chief Executive Officer and President
