Advancing a more sustainable economy

KeyCorp 2017 Corporate Responsibility Report
In 2017, Key Private Bank created the Quality ESG Equity Strategy which seeks to invest in companies that exhibit both positive environmental, social, and governance (ESG) characteristics and strong fundamental qualities, while providing risk and return characteristics similar to those of the S&P 500 index.

KeyBank is creating a more sustainable economy through products and services that support green buildings, energy efficiency, high efficiency vehicles, and renewable energy. We do this through our retail and commercial banking products in Key Community Bank, investment products in Key Private Bank, equipment financing through Key Equipment Finance,® and lending and capital investments through KeyBanc Capital Markets.


Key’s Energy Efficiency and Renewables team helps businesses of all kinds achieve sustainability – whether directly to businesses through energy upgrades that improve efficiency, reduce waste, and minimize the impact on the environment, or as a financing partner to renewable energy providers and their clients.
