PNC Releases 2023 Corporate Responsibility Report Highlighting Efforts to “Brilliantly Support All Stakeholders”

Published 06-28-24

Issued by The PNC Financial Services Group


At PNC our clients, investors, communities and employees know they can trust and rely on us to do right by them, market by market, coast to coast.

Report Highlights

PNC’s success is dependent upon our ability to create long-term value for all our stakeholders. Our unwavering focus on smart risk management and old-fashioned, relationshipbased customer service builds the foundation from which we can then engage deeply and meaningfully across the many constituencies we serve. We are active partners in strengthening our communities. We invest in building an inclusive workplace where all employees are heard and valued and can do their best work. We offer our clients practical, actionable advice for a rapidly changing world. We also provide the kind of steady, even-keeled management that gives our investors trust in our governance, management, business strategy and day-to-day operations.

It may not sound flashy, but our clients, investors, communities and employees know they can trust and rely on us to do right by them, market by market, coast to coast.

Building a more inclusive financial services system is a high priority for us and we continued to help our customers progress confidently in their financial journeys. We’re more than halfway to fulfillment of our $88 billion Community Benefits Plan to improve economic opportunities in low- and moderate-income (LMI) communities through new investments in homeownership, entrepreneurship and revitalization efforts. As of December 2023, we deployed $56 billion, nearly 64 percent of the total amount committed.

Our mobile branches completed more than 1,500 deployments, driving over 57,000 miles in 2023. This reach has positively impacted nearly 9,000 individuals through collaboration with more than 80 community organizations. We also served more than 27,447 LMI individuals via 1,584 financial education classes. And since 2021, PNC has reduced overdraft fees by more than 60 percent, saving our customers more than $672 million.

When our customers, communities, shareholders and employees flourish, we flourish. We know that being good environmental stewards is essential to supporting a high quality of life for our stakeholders. That’s why in 2023, we mobilized more than $7 billion in client environmental financing, cumulatively bringing us to $22.9 billion toward our $30 billion Environmental Finance Pledge. In addition, 2023 marks the first time that we disclosed our financed emissions using the methodology available through our membership in the Partnership for Carbon Accounting Financials (PCAF).

None these accomplishments would be possible without the dedication and strength of PNC’s 56,000-plus colleagues across the company who work each day to deliver for all our stakeholders.

  • 5,000+ employees have enrolled in academic programs though PNC’s education benefit since the program expansion in late 2022
