“We have a long legacy at Fifth Third of supporting our local communities through investments, lending, community development, philanthropy and service,” said Chairman, President and CEO Greg D. Carmichael. “We’ve often said that we engage in those activities because we believe that building a strong community builds a better bank. The reverse is also true. When Fifth Third Bank is strong, we can put that strength to work for the communities we serve. With the help of all of our stakeholders, that’s exactly what we did in 2018.”
The 2018 CSR Report details the ways in which Fifth Third used its financial strength and leveraged its most tangible asset—its employees’ generosity and commitment—to better the communities it serves, improve lives, support employees and protect the planet.
Included in the 2018 CSR Report:
Fifth Third Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer Teresa J. Tanner, said, “It’s an honor to serve our customers—from all walks of life, at every age and every stage, and inclusive of everything that makes them who they are. Our goal is to keep our customers at the center of everything we do, both inside and outside of our Company. We hope that our 2018 CSR Report demonstrates how we relish being a part of our communities and consider it a privilege, one we will never take for granted.”
