Our ESG promise
To be an enduring force for good for generations to come
Our ESG aspirations
We are still on our journey to execute a long-term ESG strategy to drive greater impact, and we recognize our work is far from complete. We continue to review and re-energize existing programs, policies and procedures, devise inspiring initiatives, and make critical, ESG-related investment decisions. Whether disclosure of our ESG activities remain voluntary or become mandatory, we will act with transparency, integrity and purpose in all we do.
Investing in our people
To deliver on our mission and attract and retain the best talent, we are building a faster and more agile company, with greater capabilities and increased client-focus. Harnessing the collective strength and talent of Equitable’s more than 8,000 employees and financial professionals, we focus on several key areas to ensure we remain a purpose-driven company where people can contribute meaningfully and thrive.
Caring for the environment
To live up to our promise to be a force for good for generations to come, Equitable must deeply understand our holistic environmental impact with the aspiration of creating programs and practices that can drive positive change. This effort includes not only assessing the operational impact of our real estate footprint and business practices, but also understanding the climate-related implications of our investment decisions.
Building stronger communities
We are committed to being a force for good in the communities where we live and work. Through philanthropic grants, impact investing, volunteer programs, awareness and engagement campaigns and the power of our people, we can drive positive and sustainable change.
Upholding stakeholder trust
We believe the cornerstone of upholding stakeholder trust is delivering on our promises and upholding our principles, from our client service approach to the economic model that guides our business decisions to our governance practices. In addition to being the right thing to do, we believe strong adherence to these principles creates long-term value for all our stakeholders, enabling Equitable to help build a better future for our clients and society for another 160 years.
