Citi's mission is to serve as a trusted partner to our clients by responsibly providing financial services that enable growth and economic progress. Our core activities are safeguarding assets, lending money, making payments and accessing the capital markets on behalf of our clients. We have 200 years of experience helping our clients meet the world's toughest challenges and embrace its greatest opportunities. We are Citi, the global bank _ an institution connecting millions of people across hundreds of countries and cities. Powering the world's cities was once a fairly dirty task. But at Citi, our vision of the future is clean and green. In 2007 Citi set a goal to direct $50 billion over 10 years to activities that mitigate climate change. So far, we've invested in wind-energy initiatives and solar power systems, reducing electricity use and promoting clean technology.
