Goldman Sachs 2010 Annual Report
Progress can take many forms: the capital that powers an innovation, the foresight that results in a new business, or the results that enable society to grow and prosper. At Goldman Sachs, we define progress in terms of how our people help move things forward for clients and communities. Progress is everyone's business.
