Pathward's ESG Commitment

Pathward’s Environmental, Social & Governance (“ESG”) efforts start with financial inclusion. They guide our policies, practices, commitments, and goals – and we apply them every day to benefit shareholders, customers, employees, our communities, and the environment.

"Our enterprise-wide approach to ESG is a testament to our commitment to ESG and the positive impacts that our business and the community can realize from thoughtful execution of our strategy."

- Catherine McGlown, Pathward Vice President, ESG, DEI, Brand, and Communications

Environmental Commitment

We are dedicated to minimizing the environmental impacts of our business operations by reducing waste, conserving resources and reducing our carbon footprint. We practice and promote environmental stewardship while mitigating our company’s exposure to environmental risk through our core competency as a money lender and careful assessment of our portfolio and strategy. We recognize that the ventures and activities we finance – particularly in alternative energy – can have a powerful, positive environmental impact and provide optimal return for our shareholders. These practices represent our commitment to helping minimize climate change while fulfilling our mission.

Governance Commitment

Our corporate governance demonstrates Pathward Financial Inc.'s commitment to responsible financial enablement. With policies and programs that support accountable business practices, we aim to consistently enhance our efforts to achieve our mission of financial inclusion for all. Our Board of Directors’ ESG committee, which meets quarterly to discuss current and emerging ESG topics and provides oversight of our ESG policies, programs, and strategies is an example of our intentional approach to integrating ESG into our business.
