As a Main Street Bank, PNC is committed to delivering on each of its strategic priorities while looking out for the best interests of all of its stakeholders, including its customers, communities, employees and shareholders. The company believes that its success will be proportional to the prosperity it helps to create for each of these stakeholders. This belief, along with PNC’s corporate values, shapes how the company does business.

“This really is our PNC story," said Richard K. Bynum, chief corporate responsibility officer. “Our commitment to creating a positive, lasting impact for all of our stakeholders is interwoven into how we operate as a business. It's in every part of how we show up for work each day, how we function, and how we engage with each other and our customers, communities and shareholders."

“In any story you read about what PNC is doing, ESG — environmental, social and governance – might not be front and center, but it's an inseparable part of it," said Lora Phillips, director of ESG for PNC’s Corporate Responsibility Group.
“It's how we build a talent-focused culture full of opportunities for our employees, how we strengthen our communities, how we deliver exceptional customer experiences, and how we strive to put doing what's right ahead of anything else. That's how we earn our stakeholders' trust, and how we differentiate ourselves in the marketplace."
