On 23 April citi announced that they have reached this goal three years early, directing $53.85 billion to these initiatives through the end of the year.

    Citi Director of Corporate Sustainability, Bruce Schlein, said: “The reaching of the $50 billion goal is something we can all be proud, and especially the numerous teams and individuals at Citi who contributed. While we’re very proud of what we’ve accomplished, we know there is still much more to be done. We are now preparing to establish a new environmental finance target, which would include climate mitigation activities as well as other financing to support the environment and help communities and cities adapt to our changing climate.”
