A Bank for Communities & Making a Difference.

It is our pleasure to share our inaugural Environmental, Social and Governance Report with you. Although we’re at the start of developing our comprehensive and strategic approach to ESG, as you’ll see, the concepts are in our DNA.

Here at M&T and Wilmington Trust, our purpose has always been to make a difference in people’s lives. Serving all of our stakeholders: customers, employees, communities, vendors and shareholders is just what we do. What’s new is that now we have decided to formalize the disclosure of our efforts into this single report and increase our transparency of those efforts under the umbrella of “ESG."
