Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG)

We’re dedicated to creating positive environmental, social, and economic outcomes for families and communities through responsible mortgage finance.

Safe, affordable housing is at the foundation of economic well-being for individuals and families — and at the center of all healthy, vibrant communities. Fannie Mae’s enduring mission is a cornerstone of that foundation.
