Forbright Releases Inaugural 2021 Environmental, Social, and Governance Report

Today, Forbright Bank releases its inaugural Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Report for the 2021 calendar year. Forbright is a purpose-driven, full-service bank committed to playing a central role in accelerating the transition to a sustainable and clean energy economy. Headquartered in Chevy Chase, Maryland, Forbright actively integrates ESG best practices into its mission, across its operations, and as a part of its loan selection and capital allocation processes. Forbright's mission is to enable businesses and consumers to achieve their diverse banking needs in a way that drives more sustainable outcomes for communities and society as a whole.

The 2021 ESG Report captures Forbright's deliberate steps toward supporting a lower carbon economy and promoting affordable and accessible essential services, such as housing, healthcare, and financial services. This includes Forbright's lending policies as well as its approach to financing companies across service-driven industries such as clean energy, healthcare, technology, and real estate that can contribute to the transition to a more sustainable economy.

"Banks play an essential role in financing the private sector's transition to a low carbon and more sustainable economy. Forbright's inaugural ESG report outlines our practices and commitments that support a move toward a brighter, greener, and more sustainable future, and we are proud to be an institution mission-aligned around these goals," said Founder and Executive Chairman John Delaney.

"As we continue to invest in our communities, empower our workforce, and finance a more sustainable future, we are committed to transparency at every step along the way. This inaugural report reflects Forbright's sustainability mindset and our dedication to continual learning and integration of best-in-class ESG practices across the organization," said Samantha Norquist, Executive Vice President, Chief ESG Officer.
