Webster believes that directors, managers and colleagues should possess the highest personal and professional ethics. We have comprehensive corporate governance policies and structures in place to foster accountability and transparency.
The security of our clients’ private information is one of Webster's key priorities. We are committed to prevention, detection and timely response to incidents that may impact the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information assets and customer information.
This commitment starts with comprehensive governance structures, policies, management committees and practices designed to ensure transparency in reporting and accountability for our Board of Directors and senior management.
We continue to advance plans to create further efficiencies in our operations and reduce our emissions, including increasing the amount of green energy used for our facilities. Across our footprint, we seek to maintain low-emission and energy-efficient working environments.
We began building our new Supplier Diversity program in 2022, integrating diversity and inclusion into our procurement process by laying a strong foundation with key internal and external stakeholders.
In 2022, Webster’s merger with Sterling National Bank increased our capabilities and scale, allowing us to build on both companies’ long-standing records of citizenship, sustainability and responsibility.
Webster believes strongly in empowering people and strengthening communities by expanding access to capital. As part of our Community Investment Strategy, we’ve made several investments in programs that foster youth leadership and help build our future workforce.
