JPMorgan Chase is honored to partner with The New York Botanical Garden to preserve the world’s biodiversity, and remains deeply committed to promoting environmental conservation and sustainability through supporting the Garden’s on-site programs and world-wide research initiatives.
JPMorgan Chase aspires to be an environmental sustainability leader in the financial services sector by employing its knowledge and capital to help clients, customers, and communities operate in a more environmentally sustainable manner, and by improving its own natural resource use.
Within our organization, we seek to continuously improve the use of resources to increase energy, water, and material efficiency. Our goal is to reduce the firm’s greenhouse gas emissions 20% by 2012, compared to 2005. Recognizing that buildings are a significant consumer of energy, we are renovating our headquarters in New York City, aiming to achieve LEED Platinum certification. The Chase Building Green program has deployed over 100 branches built to a green standard above the typical industry standard.
JPMorgan Chase views environmental sustainability not as a burden or even an obligation, but as an opportunity to contribute to the improvement of the natural environment in which we live and operate.
We hope you will join us in this endeavor by supporting the crucial work being undertaken by the New York Botanical Garden, around the world in more than 15 countries and in New York City at its 250-acre campus. By thinking globally and acting locally, each person can contribute to preserving the vast richness of Earth’s biodiversity.
