There’s so much history in Washington, D.C. You have the monuments, the architecture, and of course all of the events that have helped to shape our country. I’m proud to say that Wells Fargo just made a little bit of D.C history as well.

Last night, along with my colleagues on the environmental affairs team Jeff Austin, Internal Sustainability Strategy, and Stephanie Rico, Customer and Community Engagement, I attended a dinner for the 2nd annual Climate Leadership Awards. We were there to be recognized by EPA’s Center for Corporate Climate Leadership for our company’s dedication to reducing carbon
pollution and addressing climate change.

It was an honor to be among the 23 sustainability leaders invited to the awards dinner, and on behalf of everyone at Wells Fargo, I want to thank the EPA for acknowledging our work. And, I want to send a personal thanks to Jeff and Stephanie; and our partners across Wells Fargo.  It’s their leadership and work on behalf of Wells Fargo that makes this award possible.
