Citi's new approach to corporate citizenship.
By Citi October 06, 2010 06:02 PM
In a recent interview with The Chronicle of Philanthropy, Citi CEO Vikram Pandit talked about our commitment to practicing responsible finance and to improving the communities in which we do business. He outlined our new approach to corporate citizenship, which includes a heavy emphasis on financial inclusion:
"As a bank, we have a responsibility to do everything we can to make the communities we're in prosper. One of the responsibilities that goes with that is financial inclusion. Financial inclusion is about making services and making our capabilities available to people who aren't part of the financial system yet. We try to bring people into the system, to help them save, help them learn how to build assets, help them have a checking account. All those things go with our responsibility of being a bank."
