Credit Suisse & CSR
Credit Suisse Group’s Code of Conduct forms the basis for the company’s commitment to specific aspects of sustainability. The Code also refers to the broader obligations that the Group has endorsed or supported. These include the UN’s Global Compact – which sets out basic principles relating to human rights, employment standards, environmental protection and anti-corruption efforts – and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).
Several independent rating agencies and index providers have repeatedly rated Credit Suisse Group as one of the leaders in its industry in terms of sustainability and it has subsequently been included in sustainability indexes such as the FTSE4Good Indexes, the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index and the Dow Jones STOXX Sustainability Index.
In 1997, Credit Suisse Group became the first bank in the world to implement an environmental management system which is certified according to ISO 14001. The Group has thus laid the foundations to enable it to apply its knowledge to a variety of specialist areas and to continue to develop its environmental management system on an ongoing basis.
