“Corporate responsibility and corporate volunteering are helping CIBC Mellon invest in employees, our clients and the communities where we live and work. We’re building a great, profitable company that delivers outstanding client service, but we also believe in providing a fantastic employee experience and making CIBC Mellon a place where employees are encouraged to give back. We want our employees out and involved in the community, and as a company we want to make sure we are giving back to the community both monetarily and with our time and effort.”

Social finance, from ESG to SRI

According to BNY Mellon research, social finance refers to any investment activity that generates financial returns and includes social and environmental impact. Social finance encompasses diverse investment strategies and products across asset classes that deliver a range of risk-adjusted returns and align with different investor motivations and goals. Social finance includes four primary strategies: socially responsible investing (SRI), environmental finance, development finance and impact investing.


Social finance impacts are already emerging via investor demands and regulatory changes. In particular, pension plan sponsors are now beginning to investigate considerations of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors.
