And a conservation-minded approach to protecting the environment. All of these comprise our corporate social responsibility. All are integral to our culture of caring, now and in the future. A commitment to a culture of caring means we view our clients as partners. And it means that by turning money into good works, we extend a helping hand to those who can't care for themselves. We proudly advocate corporate citizenship, philanthropy, and support for the diverse communities and environments in which we operate.
