Regions Financial Corporation (NYSE:RF) on Friday announced the release of its 2013 Social Responsibility Report. The report, titled “Doing More,” reflects the commitment Regions has made to serving customers and communities through more than banking transactions. “Doing More” is about building stronger relationships, building stronger communities, supporting causes that are making a positive difference, and creating sustainable economic development. “We make business decisions that allow us to do well by doing good,” said Grayson Hall, president, chairman and chief executive officer of Regions Financial Corporation. “It’s about creating shared value for all our stakeholders – customers, associates, communities, and shareholders. I’m proud of the stories in this report that illustrate how our customers and associates are working together to make life better for others. Their personal interests and how they use their collective talents and expertise to improve the quality of life in our communities push us all to do more, to do better.” Examples of Regions “Doing More,” highlighted in the report, include:
- Investing in our Hometowns:
“This truly has been, and continues to be, an experience where shared values work to make life better for our customers, our community, and our bank,” said Pitts – who, herself, was a student at St. Helena Central High School and is now giving back to her hometown.
- Supporting Affordable Housing:
- Celebrating 50 Years Forward:
“As a corporate partner headquartered in a city that played such a pivotal role in the Civil Rights Movement, we felt being a part of the efforts to commemorate the 50 th anniversary of that movement was the right thing to do,” said Lajuana Bradford, head of Regions Corporate Social Responsibility.The discussion can be viewed in its entirety on the 50 Years Forward page on the Regions Financial website. Additional stories in “Doing More” include how Regions is helping survivors of domestic abuse recover and rebuild their lives, how Regions is supporting services for veterans who have returned home from war with post-traumatic stress disorder, and how Regions is supporting the expansion of an organization that connects major restaurant chains with hunger relief agencies. Further, in 2013, Regions supported more than 8,000 organizations across the 16 states served by Regions through grants, donations, charitable contributions, and sponsorships. Regions associates also participated in “Share the Good” initiatives, joining community service activities ranging from Habitat for Humanity building projects to food drives, financial education classes, random acts of kindness and hundreds of other events.
