At Commerce Bank, we believe our success is defined not only by our ability to help people meet their financial challenges, but also by the mark we leave on the world at large. As a socially responsible corporate citizen, we continuously seek opportunities to make a difference. We are committed to furthering CSR initiatives that serve our customers, strengthen our communities and support a healthy environment.
Our CSR work is part of a culture established nearly 160 years ago to be a force for good in our region and our industry. We are driven and guided in this work by our purpose — helping people navigate challenges so they can focus on what matters most. Our ongoing CSR initiatives span several key areas: community investment, customer support, employee engagement, ethics and governance, environmental sustainability, and diversity, equity and inclusion. For the latest updates on our CSR work, please see our Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) Report.
The following beliefs are aligned with our core values and guide our corporate social responsibility efforts:
“We believe corporate social responsibility is fundamentally aligned with our core values and has been deeply rooted in our culture throughout nearly 160-year history. We understand that we can only be successful so long as our customers, team members, communities and shareholders are able to thrive.”
As a socially responsible company, we believe it is important to hold ourselves accountable to our CSR commitments. We assess the impact of our CSR initiatives on a yearly basis through our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Report. The ESG Report covers our work in several key areas, including customer, community and team member engagement; corporate governance; environmental sustainability; and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. The report includes the latest updates on our work from the previous year as well as robust data and metrics.
