We are committed to adhering to our Code of Conduct and assuming corporate responsibility in
every facet of our work.

Bear Stearns Action Areas:


The Bear Stearns Foundation is dedicated to working with nonprofit organizations to ‘give back’ in the following areas:
  • Job creation in emerging economies
  • Globally focused small business expansion
  • Waste management and reforestation projects
  • Community development
  • Education efforts for the underserved and underprivileged


Bear Stearns provides local opportunities for employees to utilize their talents to aid the communities in which they work and live. We believe that our employees understand the powerful benefits of giving back through fundraising efforts and volunteering activities. Our Volunteer Reward Program rewards our employees in more ways than just financial incentives from our company. It provides benefits that can only come from helping others and seeing the positive impacts of such.


At Bear Stearns, we are committed to the highest standards of ethical behavior and business practices. We believe all our partners and stakeholders should have similar standards. We carefully evaluate and develop an understanding of each client’s business, expertise and reputation. We use a tailored approach in our risk mitigation practiced for each entity to ensure the best results for our client’s long-term interests. In doing so, we ensure sustainable growth practices that better serve the clients, communities and our firm.


Our company is dedicated to reducing waste in our corporate operations. We primarily focus on reduction of energy consumption, recycling efforts, and efficiency innovations. We promote environmentally friendly forms of transportation, energy efficient products for lighting and heating our offices, paper waste reduction and recycling.
