Responsibility Approach & Reporting

Approach & Reporting

As well as complying with the professional standards and ethical values set out in our Code of Conduct, we strive to assume our corporate responsibilities in every aspect of our work. We do so based on our broad understanding of our duties as a financial services provider, member of society and employer. Our approach also reflects our commitment to the environment.

Approach

Code of Conduct

Our Code of Conduct, which sets out binding principles for all our operations worldwide, increases the personal responsibility of all our employees and Board members and creates a framework where each individual is familiar with Credit Suisse’s corporate responsibilities.

Responsibility in Banking

Our main responsibility is to ensure we run our company successfully on a long-term basis for the benefit of our clients, shareholders, employees and society as a whole. Competence, compliance, diligence and responsible conduct are key to the success of our business. We also strive to take social and environmental aspects into account when conducting our operations. 

Responsibility in Society

We see ourselves as an integral part of society and recognize our responsibilities that go beyond banking. We aim to create value for our clients, shareholders and employees by performing our functions as a global bank responsibly and efficiently. We support the economy through our activities and play a constructive role in the broader social environment. We also support various humanitarian and charitable organizations and projects as well as cultural and sporting events.

Responsibility as an Employer

Qualified and motivated employees are a vital success factor. We want to be an employer of choice worldwide and therefore offer our people progressive working conditions, attractive training programs and varied career opportunities in a multicultural environment.

Responsibility for the Environment

The protection of the natural environment is one of the most pressing issues of our time. At Credit Suisse, we take our responsibilities seriously by promoting the efficient use of natural resources and by addressing sustainability issues when managing risks. We also develop products and services that incorporate environmental aspects for our clients.
