Sustainability and an ESG Framework

Amerant has an outstanding and proven track record of investing in its communities and making responsible decisions in the way we conduct ourselves. April 2021, we defined a company-wide initiative that considers sustainability, and an Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) framework to direct it – essential to how we are to do business going forward. We then partnered with a well-recognized firm in the field of sustainability to guide us on our mission to transform our DNA and make ESG an integral part of everything we do.

The first step was to objectively understand how we can make the most meaningful contributions to our environment, society, and in the governance of our business. Community leaders, non-profit organizations, customers, team members, and investors were interviewed to learn what matters most to them. With this valuable information, our ESG framework was crafted – and long-term commitments were made to support sustainability.

This is just the beginning of our journey. We are now methodically defining goals to drive the impact of these commitments – and will hold ourselves accountable by openly engaging with stakeholders and reporting our progress on an ongoing basis. Our first metric-driven report is on target to be available early 2022.
