Building social capital
Deutsche Bank and its employees invest actively in all societies in which they operate to strengthen their performance for the common good in a sustainable way. We enable talent, create opportunities and help people develop their creativity – with the goal of building social capital.
With a total investment of EUR 78.2 million in 2013, Deutsche Bank and its foundations are again among the world’s most active corporate citizens – even in a challenging market environment. Every fourth employee globally is engaged as a corporate volunteer, showing what passion to perform can achieve when it is passed on.
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.
