Responsibility 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.
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 that 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. This includes taking account of social and environmental aspects when conducting our business.
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 and varied career opportunities in a multicultural environment to be able to attract the best talent.
Responsibility for the Environment
We are committed to conducting our business with a long-term view to supporting environmental sustainability. We therefore strive to promote the efficient use of resources and address sustainability issues when managing risks. We also develop products and services that incorporate environmental aspects for our clients.
