With a view to our own eco-efficiency, Deutsche Bank has set the goal of reducing its carbon footprint and making the business operations climate-neutral by 2013. Among other things, we are steadily improving our energy efficiency and are switching to renewable energy.
Our energy and climate strategy
As a company with global activities, we take climate change very seriously. We adopted a comprehensive energy and climate strategy in 2007 with a commitment to effective environment action in all our activities.
The three pillars of our energy and climate strategy
Our energy and climate strategy defines three essential roles in which Deutsche Bank has actively committed itself to the environment: as a financial intermediary, as an eco-efficiency manager and as a climate ambassador.
Deutsche Bank provides strategic consulting on various projects to promote private investment in clean energy and technologies, through specialist research teams and cooperation with political decision-makers. Initiatives such as the GET FiT program and Desertec are examples.
