No organization stands outside the currents of social, political and economic change. As a bank, we’re asking the fundamental questions: what do our stakeholders – starting with our customers, and extending to our employees, communities, and society as a whole – expect? How do we address those expectations fully and responsibly?
While everyone has their part to play in building a more just society where people can flourish, we acknowledge that corporations are given a unique role. We have an opportunity to act as change makers and role models.
It’s also good business to do so. The health of our bank is directly linked to the long-term prosperity of our customers and communities, and to sustained economic growth.
At BMO, our aim is a simple one: to lead by example. We’re always striving to catalyze positive change by bringing together partners with a common will to build a more sustainable society and environment. That means knowing our stakeholders deeply and actively listening to what they care about, offering support in many forms, and above all, living the values that underpin our actions.
BMO CEO Darryl White addresses corporate responsibility, our values, sustainability and BMO’s commitment to give back to the communities we serve.
