Two hundred volunteers from Wells Fargo and Kidz Express joined KaBOOM! to transform an empty site into a state-of-the-art playground in just six hours, serving thousands of families in the South Austin community.The new play area is located at Kidz Express, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit youth community center dedicated to improving the lives of more than 100 inner city children through academic support, peer mentoring, and leadership development.

Wells Fargo Among ‘Most Transparent’ on Environmental, Social, and Governance Metrics

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 15 Maggio 2019

In a study commissioned by Financial Times’ Agenda, stock-ratings firm HIP Investor rated Wells Fargo among the most transparent companies on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) metrics. A summary of the study appeared in the publication’s April 8 edition.“Being transparent about our approach to environmental and social governance issues and the risks associated with them helps Wells Fargo proactively address concerns, assures team members that we are considering important aspects of these decisions and — importantly — creates shareholder value,” said Mary Wenzel, head of Sustainability and Corporate Responsibility at Wells Fargo. “Setting sustainability goals and reporting on our progress helps Wells Fargo maintain a focus on issues that are critical to managing risk, running our business in a more sustainable fashion and delivering on our commitment to leadership in corporate citizenship.” Financial Times Agenda writes that the study was commissioned “to identify the S&P 500 companies that most fully — and least fully — report these important metrics that connect with financial value creation and risk reduction.” It used publicly available information including CDP (formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project) disclosures, annual reports, corporate responsibility and sustainability reports and the Thomson Reuters/Refinitiv database to arrive at its conclusions.Wells Fargo ranked No. 9 on the study’s list of most transparent S&P 500 companies, and Wells Fargo was first among financial services firms.Wells Fargo seeks to employ best practices in corporate transparency and disclosure, and reports on ESG-related issues through annual financial reporting and proxy statements, annual Corporate Social Responsibility reporting, company policy statements, a Business Standards Report, and other public disclosures including CDP reporting.

Al via la class action contro la banca Wells Fargo

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 19 settembre 2016

giustiziaAl via una causa promossa da alcuni clienti che mirano ad ottenere lo status di una class action contro Wells Fargo & Co, coinvolta in uno scandalo per i falsi conti aperti dai dipendenti a nome di ignari clienti. Un’azione legale è stata avviata nella Corte distrettuale dello Utah per frode, negligenza, invasione della sfera privata e altre accuse. La banca è già stata condanna dal Consumer financial protection bureau, l’organismo per la tutela dei consumatori creato con la riforma di Wall Street, a pagare 190 milioni di dollari per le sue ”pratiche illegali” consistenti nell’apertura di circa 2 milioni di account, senza la conoscenza dei clienti, al fine di soddisfare gli obiettivi di vendita. La nostra associazione, evidenzia Giovanni D’Agata, presidente dello “Sportello dei Diritti”, che già nel passato è stata promotrice di denunce contro la finanza creativa anche se nel settore assicurativo, ancora una volta, alla luce di questa notizia, chiarisce come ” la produzione capitalistica viene colta periodicamente da una vertigine, nella quale si vuole fare denaro senza la mediazione del processo di produzione”. Tutto ciò mentre l’economia reale, quella relativa alla produzione di beni e servizi, annaspa, va in crisi, ed i cittadini sono costretti a fare i conti con disagi e privazioni, precarietà e disoccupazione. Ciò consiste nel fatto che una parte rilevante del quantitativo di moneta circolante, già ridottosi per effetto della recessione, anziché dirigersi verso gli investimenti nei settori produttivi dell’economia segue ormai la via della speculazione fine a se stessa. E, come tutti sanno, la speculazione non si fregia di nessuna utilità sociale, essendo la sua missione quella di tirare profitti dalla compravendita di titoli finanziari, per il solo, e rapido, arricchimento di chi ne è artefice, degli scommettitori professionali, per intenderci. Se dal denaro, anche da quello virtuale, si può tirare fuori altro denaro, direttamente, velocemente, senza “la mediazione del processo di produzione”, perché attardarsi nell’impresa faticosa del produrre per guadagnare? Sarà stata, questa, anche la valutazione di tanti capitani d’impresa, che, negli ultimi anni, hanno pensato bene di investire i loro capitali in attività finanziarie anziché reimmetterli nel ciclo produttivo. Per tale ragione si deve mettere un limite alla speculazione finanziaria introducendo regole ed elementi di trasparenza. Non intervenire significherebbe condannare le nostre società alla catastrofe. (Giovanni D’AGATA)
