What Sustainability means to us

As the commercial real estate bank in the Volksbanken Raiffeisenbanken cooperative financial network, we look back on a corporate history spanning more than 90 years. Uniting business and social responsibility has always been an integral part of our corporate culture. To us, sustainability means that we must satisfy the needs of today’s generations, and offer them fair opportunities for development – without compromising the chances of future generations or threatening our natural livelihood. We thus agree with the Brundtland Commission Report, published in 1987.



To us, sustainable development is a constant learning process, one which helps reveal potential for improvement in various businesses, as well as providing direction as to how we can better overcome current and future challenges and seize new chances in new ways. This not only includes a risk-aware banking business, but also efficiently using and conserving natural resources and a forward-looking HR approach to demographic change.
