Tackling key social challenges
Through our corporate citizenship programs, we tackle key social challenges. We focus on removing barriers to education and personal development, driving change to improve the condition for people and communities and to help overcome structural inefficiencies. In addition, we make cultural experiences accessible to a wider audience and provide a platform for young talent in art and music . This is how we build social capital.
In 2013, more than 2 million people benefitted directly from our corporate citizenship programs.
Deutsche Bank’s corporate responsibility is brought to life in its regional units and endowed foundations. Their initiatives ensure that social capital is built in all regions in which the bank operates.
