Spring 2022: Voice of Membership

In our last Financial Partner, we introduced Farm Credit East’s Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) strategy. As a customer-owned cooperative, ESG is an increasing priority for Farm Credit East, and the governance pillar is one often overlooked when discussing ESG, however it is the one most customer focused. Governance defines how corporate decisions are made and how rights and responsibilities are distributed to interested parties, including the board of directors, management and shareholders.
