Sustainability Management System

Structures for a sustainable future

The beginnings of our commitment to sustainability date back to the 1980s. In 1999, Deutsche Bank was the first major German bank to establish a management system that was certified according to the international ISO 14001 standard and that also included the topics "social" and "governance".


Clearly defined structures, processes and responsibilities are necessary to anchor sustainability in a company. For this reason, Deutsche Bank has established a comprehensive sustainability management system in all its business units world-wide. This system ensures that all our employees make their decisions in compliance with our sustainability strategy standards and recognize these as an integral part of our business strategy. Moreover, our management system guarantees that our strategy is implemented as effectively and efficiently as possible and that our performance is constantly improved - whether it is the management of our company, the consideration of social issues, product development, risk management or operational environmental protection.
