Comerica understands "sustainability" as an approach to conducting ourselves in a way that meets the needs of the present in ways that do not compromise the ability of future generations to meet their needs.
How We View Sustainability
We recognize that the prosperity and well-being of the people, businesses, and communities we serve today - as well as those we will serve tomorrow - depend on sustained access to:
Natural resources provided by a healthy environment
Social and human resources provided by healthy communities
We are therefore committed to:
- Protecting and preserving the environment
- Enhancing the human and social capital of the communities in which we do business
Finding solutions to the complex challenges of today's world requires new ways of thinking and an ability to understand how economic, social, and environmental systems interrelate and affect one another. We believe that integrating such an understanding into the ways we live and do business will:
- Serve the best interests of people and the planet
- Improve our company's business performance and create long-term value for our stakeholders
