KeyBank has released its 2017 Corporate Responsibility Report, highlighting progress in the areas of responsible banking, responsible citizenship and responsible operations. Included in the report are the first year results of the five-year National Community Benefits Plan, under which KeyBank invested $2.8 billion in communities. KeyBank executives said the investment exceeded the goals for 2017 by 21% and represents a strong start for the five-year plan.
“I’m pleased that in 2017 we surpassed our expectations for the community benefits plan,” said Beth Mooney, Chairman and CEO of KeyCorp (NYSE: KEY). “Thriving communities have stable neighborhoods with affordable housing, growing small businesses, and jobs. The community benefits plan is designed to help provide support in all of those areas.”

“Consistency and commitment are the cornerstones of KeyBank’s corporate responsibility efforts,” said Bruce Murphy, executive vice president and head of Corporate Responsibility. “What is exciting to me is the depth and breadth of investments in communities stretches from Maine to Alaska, from our workforce to the marketplace. The community benefits plan is an important part of our approach but, as the 2017 Corporate Responsibility Report details, the commitment runs even deeper.”
