HSH Nordbank & CSR
HSH Nordbank AG committed itself to corporate and social responsibility at an early stage, not at least due to its roots as “Landesbank” focused primarily on financing infrastructure and business in its home region. We endorsed the UNEP FI initiative in 1995 and are promoting sustainable development considering environmental, ethical, social and ecological aspects in our business operations.
Our corporate citizenship covers the following areas:
o Commitment to climate protection (prevention of CO2-emissions, backing replanting of forest and renaturation of lowland moors, reducing energy, water and paper consumption )
o Thrifty dealing with natural resources
o Unifying aspects of environmental requirements with economical demands and ethical as well as social behaviour being reflected in our business activities (lending policy, project finance for wind parks, renewable energy)
o Fostering diversity at the workplace (flexible working opportunities, childcare program, equal opportunity policy, code of conduct)
o Sponsorship of science, sports, arts, culture
o Partnerships with economic and ecological organisations
Social responsibility is an integrated part of HSH Nordbank`s corporate culture and thus omnipresent in our daily business creating values for all our stakeholders.
