Corporate sustainability

Putnam was founded on principles of prudent investing, client service, and thoughtful asset stewardship. Our long-standing commitment to sustainability is a dynamic driver behind all our work. Anchored in our aim to help people secure their financial well-being, we are constantly refining our view of what matters most as a sustainable firm.

What matters for sustainability

Our approach to sustainability at Putnam begins by identifying what matters most to our mission, our people, and our connections to the community.

To further this vision, we continue our work in the following areas:

  • Strengthening our forward-thinking investment process
  • Being diverse and inclusive
  • Adhering to high ethical standards
  • Supporting our community and stakeholders
  • Being good stewards of the environment

"Reporting on this year's sustainability work inspires all of us at Putnam. The active engagement across our organization propels the work we have ahead with more intention and intensity than ever."
