Western Union

The Western Union Company, a leader in global payment services, believes access to financial services is a necessity. Western Union moves money reliably and quickly to almost every country – and we do it for extraordinary people seeking a better life and for businesses that generate jobs and opportunity.

Our business changes lives for the better. So does the Western Union Foundation: since 2001, the Western Union Foundation has awarded more than $101.1 million in grants to more than 2,730 nongovernmental organizations in more than 135 countries and territories..

Corporate Social Responsibility

Corporate Responsibility Is In Our Brand DNA

Corporate responsibility is a business strategy that shapes how we operate on a daily basis. At Western Union, we believe can be more successful as a company when we operate according to the highest ethical standards, address unmet social needs and promote the wellbeing of our consumers, their communities and the environment.

Our corporate responsibility team focuses on environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues, helping to shape policies and practices around our core operations and our community commitment. They also help to drive shared value, identifying opportunities for innovative products and services that contribute to our financial strength as a company, as well as the financial strength of the people we serve.

Western Union products and services meet the needs of people in under-served markets – and we work to scale those innovations across our global footprint, reaching the so-called next five billion – those who choose Western Union to pay their bills, send prepaid gift cards to their relatives or transfer money between bank accounts. We aim to help people everywhere move a little further up the economic ladder by seizing the opportunities that come from getting money where it needs to be, just when it needs to be there.
