Summary of Sustainability Strategy
The sustainability strategy is based on in-depth analysis of our vision (“to be the leading bank in sustainable performance and customer satisfaction”), Our Way (our culture), corporate policies, voluntary commitments and agreements, surveys and meetings with stakeholders in order to understand the material issues. We have three strategic focus points for our activities: Dialogue and Transparency, Financial Education, and Environmental and Social Risks and Opportunities. These are supported by four fronts: Governance and Management, Efficiency, Incentives and Culture.
The Sustainability Map operates as a strategic guidance, instructing our different operating and business areas to include sustainability issues in their decision-making process. More than just creating new products, we work to adjust our operations, mitigate risks, identify competitive differentials and generate income in a context of higher demand for management of environmental and social impacts. Thus, we will be able to achieve effective and long-term results. This sustainability vision has improved and it has been incorporated by our different business areas by means of the systemic analysis indicators and assessment of achieved results.
