Our commitments in Asia Pacific
In Asia Pacific, we focus on improving the employability, aspirations and financial education of disadvantaged young people and the financial inclusion of underprivileged populations.
Credit Suisse APAC Foundation
The Credit Suisse APAC Foundation focuses on improving the employability, aspirations and financial education of disadvantaged young people and the financial inclusion of underprivileged populations across Asia Pacific through multi-year partnerships involving both financial support, capacity building and employee engagement.
Employees are encouraged to support our local communities by donating their time and skills to initi-atives and projects run by our partner organizations. Active charity committees across countries help to promote and coordinate these efforts at a local level.
Corporate Citizenship APAC works closely with local partner organizations to deliver volunteering opportunities to employees. These partners serve their communities through a wide range of activities, including healthcare, home building/renovation, food collection/distribution, disaster relief, assistance to people with special needs (e.g., elderly, persons living with disabilities, victims of human trafficking and domestic violence), environmental/wildlife preservation, etc.
