Our commitment to social sustainability

We believe we have an important responsibility to support the communities where we live and work. As a bank, as a local employer and as a global company, we recognize that we must play our part to fight disadvantage and improve access so that everyone can benefit from global economic growth and development.

“We work for a more inclusive future where all people can access the resources and develop the financial, entrepreneurial and other skills they need to thrive in the economy and society.”

Laura Hemrika, Global Head Corporate Citizenship

Our mission to empower people

As a corporate citizen, we seek to engage our employees and empower people through our activities.

Engaging our colleagues for a sustainable world

An international skills-based volunteering program that allows employees to share expertise with our partner organizations around the world through one week to three month assignments.

We match employees with training, placement, networks and other resources to be able to serve on non-profit boards. Board service allows employees to contribute and develop their skills while adding value to the community by governing and supporting the mission of a nonprofit organization.

Our virtual program that helps employees to develop their skills and contribute to our partner organizations without the need for travel. By putting their talents to use outside their role, employees are able to make a meaningful difference in communities across the globe.
