Submitted by United Nations Federal Credit Union (UNFCU)
United Nations Federal Credit Union (UNFCU) released its 2022 Impact Report (PDF), detailing the Credit Union's corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives. UNFCU's positive impact advanced 14 of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Key achievements in support of the UN SDGs:
“At this midway point for collective global action on achieving the UN SDGs, we are committed to prioritizing positive change in the communities we serve,” said Yma Gordon, Vice President of Corporate Social Responsibility and Impact at UNFCU, and Executive Director of the UNFCU Foundation. “Our CSR is guided by the UN SDGs and is a reflection of and commitment to our members' work globally.”
Last year, for example, UNFCU expanded the UIS Network it founded for credit unions and their associations beyond North America. UNFCU's staff also conducted more than 6,000 volunteer hours working on internal and external sustainability initiatives.
“From shaping allyship and supplier diversity programs to regularly convening our industry on environmental, social, and governance (ESG), 2022 was a year of action,” said Prasad Surapaneni, Co-Executive Sponsor of UNFCU's CSR Program. “With this momentum, we aim to contribute even more to advancing the UN SDGs.”
Philanthropy is one of three focus areas for UNFCU's CSR. The UNFCU Foundation, an accredited New York-based nonprofit corporation, invested $1 million in poverty alleviation for women and youth, and humanitarian relief efforts. Against the backdrop of socio-economic and geopolitical uncertainty, UNFCU Foundation supported critical access to education, health care, and jobs training.
UNFCU developed its 2022 Impact Report with reference to the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). In close collaboration with Greenhouse Gas Accounting specialists, the Credit Union tracked emissions using the Greenhouse Gas Protocol standard.
