Sustainability management system

  • 1999 introduction of the group-wide sustainability management system
  • The system is certified according to the international ISO 14001 standard.
  • It encompasses environmental aspects as well as social and governance issues.
  • Based on defined structures, practices and responsibilities
  • It ensures systematic management and efficiency reviews in conjunction with implementation of our sustainability goals.
  • Since 1999, we have steadily improved our sustainability performance with the aid of the management system.
  • Most recent recertification: March 2012 (numerous corporate units and infrastructure areas of the bank were inspected worldwide)


Key areas of our sustainability management over the next three years:

  • Strengthening the strategic approach of our sustainability management
  • Defining a new and improved stakeholder engagement strategy
  • Strategic sustainability goals
  • Introducing key performance indicators (KPI) for sustainability and a system for monitoring and reporting on our performance
  • Updating our system for managing sustainability risks, particularly in areas that are particularly sensitive for our business.
