Operational Sustainability

In 2017, Fifth Third set five bold sustainability goals to help prioritize our environmental sustainability efforts. This included targeted goals to reduce our energy use and location based GHG emissions by 25%, to reduce our water consumption and waste sent to a landfill by 20%, and to purchase 100% renewable power. At the end of 2021, we successfully achieved four of these goals (energy, water, GHG emissions, and renewable power).

Goals * Although we did not achieve our waste reduction goal, we made great progress in reducing our waste by more than 1 million pounds annually and are committed to continuing our work to reduce the amount of material we use and recycle as much as we can.

Building on our original 2017 goals, we were excited to announce in 2022 a new set of goals to be achieved by 2030. They include bolder commitments that will help guide our continuing efforts and ensure progress in vital areas of operational sustainability.
