Summary of sustainability strategy
Commerzbank wants to nurture the sustainable development of our company and the environment in which we operate. We do so by means of efficient management systems, offering sustainable products and services, raising employees’ awareness and establishing close ties between Commerzbank and society.
To ensure a systematic approach in these areas, we have defined three fields of action. They represent our key challenges and provide a framework for how we respond.
