Since 2012, BuzzWord has served as JPMorgan Chase’s ESG and corporate responsibility reporting strategy and content partner. The company’s annual ESG Report provides clear, concise information on key ESG topics most relevant to its business and of greatest interest to its stakeholders. It also showcases how the firm is putting its business and expertise to work to help solve broader social and environmental challenges.

The company’s 2020 ESG Report expands on the firm’s approach to managing climate-related risks and opportunities, and was informed by the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). It details the steps JPMorgan Chase is taking to align its financing activities with the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement—including announcing 2030 carbon intensity targets for the Oil & Gas, Electric Power and Auto Manufacturing sectors—and provides updates about the firm’s approach to helping clients transition to a low-carbon economy. The report is also informed by the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) standards and developed in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative's Standards.

Alongside its 2020 ESG Report, JPMorgan Chase released a separate document providing a deep dive on the methodology behind the company’s Paris-aligned financing commitment.
