Environmental, Social, and Governance

Planting Seeds for a Better World

Apple Bank is extremely proud to present its first annual Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Report—a showcase of our work on behalf of the communities we serve and our ongoing dedication to the world in which we live. Apple Bank’s commitment to ESG is built upon a firm foundation of community-focused operations dating back to our founding in 1863. We have always put the interests of our customers first, providing a stable and consistent banking presence in metropolitan New York City neighborhoods and beyond while contributing to the quality of life in the neighborhoods we serve. As the largest state-chartered savings bank in New York offering a full range of retail banking services in all five boroughs; Long Island, Westchester and Rockland counties; and New Jersey, we manage more than $16 billion in assets prudently and responsibly.

Apple Bank extends that commitment and care into a mindful and mission-based approach to promoting cultural and social progress while addressing the risks and opportunities of climate change. The bank’s commitment to ESG brings many different departments together to improve our processes and frameworks and to develop strategies for responsible growth. 

Strengthening our ESG efforts is core to Apple Bank. The Apple Bank board of directors, leaders, and staff invite you to review the report and join us as we continue to do our part to advance a sustainable and financially-responsible future.
