A Relentless Ally for Social Good

At Ally, we firmly believe it’s our responsibility as corporate citizens to make a positive social impact on the world around us. This belief is embedded in the very fabric of our business and culture.

In 2017, we began rethinking our commitments to the communities where we live and work. We’re moving beyond giving programs that primarily focus on volunteering and philanthropy to a more strategic approach that supports social and business results. We’re focusing on environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues that differentiate us from our peers, provide a positive social impact and help our stakeholders understand what’s important to us.

Ally Environmental Sustainability CDP Reporting

Our commitment to being a relentless Ally goes beyond banking. That’s why we’re focused on conserving environmental resources to help create a sustainable future for our customers, employees, shareholders, and communities we support. To demonstrate our commitment, we submit a yearly climate change questionnaire to not-for-profit environmental reporting organization CDP for an assessment and calculation of our Scope 1, Scope 2, and Scope 3 emissions.
