Our social commitments

Companies can only achieve long-term success if they operate in an economically stable and socially cohesive environment. 

To create a sustainable impact, we have established strategic partnerships that seek to contribute to the achievement of the United Nations' SDGs through our global and regional initiatives. We strive to make effective use of our social and financial capital to have a positive impact not only on society but also on employees and our core business. 


Empowering people through financial inclusion, financial education and future skills

We regard education and access to financial services as key drivers of growth and an effective means of empowering people to help themselves. In 2019, Credit Suisse announced the launch of a new theme for the bank's commitments to global education: Future Skills. We also have the opportunity to grow our impact beyond the funding of long-term partnerships through our most valuable asset – our employees. In addition to employee engagement, our social commitments therefore center around three themes: financial inclusion, financial education and future skills.


Employees: expertise, development, commitment

Our employees are essential to our commitment to society. As part of the bank’s Human Capital Strategy, we allow each employee to devote up to four days per year to support social projects run by our partners in the communities where they live and work. We continue to place an emphasis on volunteering programs that promote the transfer of skills and knowledge between employees and partners. This enables our employees to use their expertise to make a difference and gives them the opportunity to enhance their own skills and professional development.
