Our governance structure

To help us achieve our sustainability ambitions, we have a clear governance structure consisting of a Sustainability Board and a number of committees. Our group-wide Corporate Sustainability Team plays a driving and coordinating role in making sure sustainability remains a priority throughout the entire company.

    Engaging with stakeholders

    We have an ongoing dialogue with our stakeholders, including at our annual stakeholder event, client meetings, surveys, shareholder discussions, auditors’ meetings and regulatory engagements. This dialogue enables us to understand and address stakeholders’ interests and expectations. Our commitment to engage with stakeholders is integrated into our strategy and the Banker’s Oath, signed by all employees since 2015.

    Material topics

    Every two years, we carry out an extensive survey to identify the topics that are most material to our stakeholders, presenting the results in a materiality matrix. To embed sustainability practices and measure progress, we have established Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for the ten most material topics, out of 20 in total.
