2030 Environmental and Social Finance Target

The Fifth Third Environmental & Social Finance Framework is intended to provide our stakeholders clarity regarding our criteria for determining what services are eligible and the value of transactions toward our 2030 target. The framework establishes a consistent and comprehensive methodology for the classification and reporting of financial products and services as sustainable.
After achieving our $8 billion renewable energy goal, Fifth Third expanded our aim in 2022 and announced a 10-year, $100 billion environmental and social finance target through 2030. The new target continues our commitment to accelerating the transition to and support for more sustainable and inclusive growth.

ESG Reporting Frameworks

2019 ESG

The Sustainability Accounting Standard Board Standards are intended to capture sustainability matters that are financially material—reasonably likely to have a material impact on financial performance or condition.


The mission of the Financial Stability Board’s Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) is to develop voluntary, consistent climate-related financial risk disclosures for use by companies in providing information to investors, lenders, insurers, and other stakeholders. Fifth Third’s 2022 TCFD Report furthers our commitment to recommendations of the TCFD.

GRI Index

Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) is an independent international organization that has pioneered sustainability reporting since 1997. GRI exists to help organizations be transparent and take responsibility for their impacts so that we can create a sustainable future.

Stakeholder Capitalism Metrics

In September 2020, the World Economic Forum’s International Business Council released the Stakeholder Capitalism Metrics (SCM) and disclosures for companies to use to align their mainstream reporting on performance against environmental, social and governance indicators and track their contributions towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals on a consistent basis.
