Citi's mission is to serve as a trusted partner to our clients by responsibly providing financial services that enable growth and economic progress. As we work towards this simple yet powerful goal, we focus our efforts on five catalysts for progress:
Citi supports local economies today, while providing the tools and technologies to empower the workforce of tomorrow
Citi strives to enable economic progress for institutions of all shapes, sizes, scale and scope. As consumers and small businesses are the foundation of local economies, we provide people with affordable and responsible lending that helps small businesses and consumers progress while remaining financially resilient. And beyond our business activities, Citi is committed to the communities we serve by helping to train the workforce of tomorrow and providing the tools and technologies that expand financial inclusion.
As megacities grow in numbers, Citi supports the core urban-ecosystem needs that enable economic progress.
Around the world, local governments are looking for partners to address entrenched challenges to urban progress and help them provide tools and solutions to connect citizens to services. Citi answers the call by strengthening the vitality of these cities. Our efforts support modern infrastructure, stimulate local economies, enable public services to run smoothly and efficiently, help connect citizens to resources, and improve peoples' quality of life.
We are investing in sustainable growth and facilitating responsible environmental solutions for our clients and our own operations
Today, companies of all sizes are increasingly focused on the environmental impact and sustainability of their businesses. By understanding the challenges and opportunities of these efforts, Citi empowers sustainable growth in three ways: by financing and facilitating projects focused on environmental solutions, by helping our clients manage the risk associated with impacts on the environment and communities, and by managing our own operations and supply chain to reduce costs and reflect best practices.
Our people drive our business, and the diversity of ideas, experience and background of health-minded employees make our business better
With a focus on successful client engagement, we strive to attract and retain talented, globally-minded individuals. We rise to the challenge by developing the potential of our employee base and offering opportunities for professional development and community engagement within a culture of inclusion and collaboration.
As a global bank, people trust Citi with their money. Our credibility is core to facilitating economic progress around the world.
At Citi, our mission is to enable economic progress around the world, while creating the best outcomes for our clients with financial solutions that are creative and responsible. We understand that our reputation is critical to inspiring confidence in our investors and clients, and integral to our success. Fostering a culture of ethical conduct and decision-making has been, and continues to be, a top priority for our company.
