Responsibility—in Actions and Investments

At AB, we share a collective mission to serve our clients, employees, communities and future generations in a responsible way. That’s why we’ve dedicated ourselves to being responsible in our actions as a corporation and in how we invest.

Here’s one way we’re walking the walk: We’re committed to housing our employees in environmentally friendly offices. We’ve set a goal to increase the percentage of AB employees working in green buildings—as defined by Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) or other local standards—to 65% by 2025.

“To us, corporate responsibility is an ongoing commitment—a journey, not a destination. It’s woven tightly into the fabric of who we are as a firm.”
—Seth Bernstein, President and CEO
