We are guided by the belief that banking done right is good for our customers, our business, and society.
As the need to build a more sustainable, low-carbon economic system grows increasingly urgent, we are dedicating half of our assets to financing the companies, investors, and innovators driving that change. We empower people to directly fund clean energy and sustainability-oriented loans through decarbonization linked deposit products, allowing them to play a critical role in furthering the energy transition.
We believe the three core ideas that drive our business are ones of consequence:
First, the science is clear: climate change is a fundamental risk to individuals, businesses, and our world, and we must move to a more sustainable, net-zero carbon economy to avoid its worst impacts. These issues cut across every industry, and governments cannot fund this transition alone. The world needs a bank to help finance a brighter, greener, and more sustainable future and this imperative is the single largest investment opportunity of our lifetime.
Second, we live in a period of extraordinary change. Visionary entrepreneurs, growing middle-market companies, and sophisticated investors and operators in clean energy, healthcare, financial services, technology, real estate, and other industries need a trusted lender that moves as fast and as smart as they do to drive their businesses and investments to greater success and achievement.
Third, a large and growing number of individuals and institutions want to bank with a leader committed to high environmental, social, and governance standards. We let people connect their banking decisions to a values-driven institution that is committed to driving progress for their communities and society.
Forbright’s mission is to be the indispensable partner for advancing all three. We hope you join us!
