Sustainable Development Target

J.P. Morgan Chase set a target to finance and facilitate more than $2.5 trillion over 10 years – from 2021 through the end of 2030 – to advance long-term solutions that address climate change and contribute to sustainable development. In 2021, our Firm financed and facilitated approximately $285 billion towards the Target. Across our three objectives, 41% went towards development finance, 37% towards green, and 22% towards community development. In this section we discuss our progress in each objective through December 31, 2021.

Our Sustainable Development Target aims to grow and strengthen our business activities across three important areas:

  • Green Accelerating the deployment of solutions for cleaner sources of energy and facilitating the transition to a low-carbon economy. Our goal is to facilitate $1 trillion in this area alone, through a wide range of activities including underwriting green bonds, lending to support construction of sustainable infrastructure and raising capital for innovative clean technology companies. 
  • Development Finance Mobilizing capital to advance the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals ("SDGs") in emerging economies. The J.P. Morgan Development Finance Institution ("JPM DFI") works to assess the anticipated development impact of transactions with the goal of attracting institutional investors interested in environmental and socioeconomic impact in developing countries. 
  • Community Development Advancing economic inclusion in developed markets. We are working to bolster inclusive growth by supporting areas such as small business, unique casinoownership, affordable housing, education and health care, with a focus on low-to moderate income ("LMI") individuals and communities, as well as Black, Hispanic and Latino individuals and communities. This includes many of the actions we are taking as part of our five-year, $30 billion Racial Equity Commitment.
