Corporate Social Responsibility Statement


Rick WaddellFor 125 years, Northern Trust has aligned our efforts with our guiding principles of service, expertise and integrity. We are dedicated not only to meeting the needs of our clients and shareholders, but giving back to the communities we serve. Volunteerism. Philanthropy. Sound business practices and ethics. And a conservation-minded approach to protecting the environment. All of these comprise our corporate social responsibility. All are integral to our culture of caring, now and in the future. A commitment to a culture of caring means we view our clients as partners. And it means that by turning money into good works, we extend a helping hand to those who can't care for themselves. We proudly advocate corporate citizenship, philanthropy, and support for the diverse communities and environments in which we operate.

Rick Waddell, Chairman and CEO,
Northern Trust
