New York Citi today released its 2017 Global Citizenship Report, highlighting efforts made in the last year to responsibly provide financial services that enable growth and progress. This report includes numerous examples of how, through our core business and with our philanthropic efforts, we are helping address complex and pressing issues such as global warming and social inequality.
The report outlines Citi's approach to citizenship: A business model that adds value to society; taking a stand on issues that matter and driving solutions; a focus on ethical decision-making and responsible business practices; and an enhanced focus on transparency and knowledge building.

Section two, "Solutions for Impact," includes examples of how Citi is well positioned—through our expertise and resources—to help address complex social and economic challenges around the world.
"The ways Citi helps make our communities stronger, provide opportunities to those who need support, protect our environment and celebrate diversity are the truest reflection of our values and the progress we enable around the world," said Citi CEO Michael Corbat. "This report highlights the innovative ways—big and small—we are demonstrating the positive impact we have on society."
