Projects and Activities
At Credit Suisse, we view the protection of biodiversity as an integral part of our sustainability commitments. Biodiversity-related issues are considered in Credit Suisse’s risk management processes, and it covers this topic in its sector-specific policies and guidelines. We also address the issue of environmental sustainability and sustainable land use in our dialogue with stakeholders. In March 2018, for example, we contributed to a regional policy dialogue in Bangkok with government representatives, development agencies and the private sector. Organized by The Center for People and Forests, it focused on ways of mobilizing opportunities for forest landscape restoration in South Asia. Credit Suisse contributed to the publication "Connecting Finance and Natural Capital: Supplement to the Natural Capital Protocol" – and took part in its official launch in April 2018. This gave Credit Suisse the opportunity to share examples of how it addresses natural capital risks in its transactions while creating opportunities in this space through its products and services.
