Measuring, evaluating and managing corporate responsibility
Clients, investors and society demand transparent corporate policies and actions. Sustainability ratings and indices assess corporate achievements in environmental, social and governance areas and serve clients and investors who consider social and environmental aspects in their decisions. We set great store by our standing in relevant ratings and indices and our sustainability performance has been assessed regularly by recognized independent authorities in recent years. We have also received numerous awards for social responsibility.
To ensure effective implementation of our sustainability strategy and to control eco-efficiency measures, Deutsche Bank uses a comprehensive Sustainability Management System, among other controls. We regularly gather relevant consumption data in order to analyze environmental performance and understand how to improve.
Our annual Global Impact Tracking (GIT), rolled out in 2012, evaluates whether our investments are aligned with our goal of building social capital. The tool was set up to assess the impact of our programs and systematically collect feedback from our community partners.

Sustainability ratings and indices – Creating transparency for investors
Deutsche Bank has been included in leading sustainability indices for many years. This acknowledges our commitment and sends important signals to our target groups. For example, our company is in the top ten percent of financial service providers in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI).
We can only meet the expectations of our stakeholder groups and earn a good assessment by comprehensively integrating sustainability principles into the strategic orientation, corporate management and core business activities of the Bank.
Deutsche Bank is holding its own in the most important sustainability indices
A continuing focus on sustainability earned Deutsche Bank a place in the CDP Climate Performance Leadership Index (CPLI) for the second time in 2013. The CDP (formerly Carbon Disclosure Project) is a non-profit organisation that asks the largest stock exchange listed companies to publish their greenhouse gas emissions every year. With a score of 91 (out of 100 possible) points in the disclosure category and an A rating in evaluation of performance (on a scale of A to E) with reference to the criteria of the CDP, Deutsche Bank is one of 75 companies worldwide that are listed in the CPLI.
With its listing in the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices – a leading group of global equity indices that take environmental and social criteria into account in addition to economic aspects – Deutsche Bank has reinforced its position among the top ten percent of companies in the financial sector on its sustainability performance. Deutsche Bank remains the only German bank listed on both the DJSI Europe and World indices since they were launched in 1999.
Deutsche Bank has also once again been listed in the FTSE4Good Index. To be included in this index published by the London Stock Exchange, companies have to meet stringent requirements relating to the environment and climate protection, human and labour rights and anti-corruption.
Deutsche Bank has been listed from the outset in the STOXX Global ESG Leaders Index, which is published by Deutsche Börse and the STOXX Indices. Deutsche Bank has also been able to achieve positive results in other leading sustainability ratings. Among other things, we succeeded in improving our results in the ranking of the international research agency Sustainalytics and were once again accorded prime status in the Oekom Corporate Responsibility Review 2013. Oekom Research is one of the world’s leading rating agencies in the field of sustainable investments.
