Sustainable Products

Sustainable products and investment strategies

We make financial resources available to those clients and sectors that promote sustainable development and give investors the opportunity to allocate capital to sustainable products.

Deutsche Bank conducts its sustainable finance and sustainable financial product activities in accordance with its Sustainable Finance Framework, which is aligned on a best effort basis to the EU Taxonomy. The new Sustainable Finance Framework defines a global process and creates Group-wide rules for the criteria which the bank may use in future to classify fixed-income and securities transactions, capital market products and financing offers as sustainable. The Framework stipulates sector-specific thresholds and eligibility criteria, as well as the environmental and social criteria that apply to the due diligence process for sustainable finance.
The independent consultancy ISS ESG confirmed in a second party opinion (short version, long version) that Deutsche Bank’s Framework is consistent with “best market practices” and that its content is aligned with the bank’s existing sustainability criteria. Furthermore, ISS ESG concluded that the standards applied by the Framework to define transactions as sustainable are ambitious and credible. Deutsche Bank “is among the first international banks to explicitly refer to the EU Taxonomy in its group-level sustainability policy”.
