Corporate Environmental Protection

We are aware of the ecological consequences of our activities

A sound and stable environment is the basis of human existence; it is also a basic requirement for every type of business activity. Systematic environmental and climate protection take a major role in our day-to-day work, with our focus being on those areas where we have a direct influence. Our environmental activities focus on optimising the use of energy and resources at the bank, and on using renewable energy sources to consistently reduce our operational carbon footprint. Facility management, in particular, holds very specific potential for minimising negative contributions. We also seek to reduce mobility-related emissions such as those resulting from business travel. An environmentally friendly supply chain of products and services is also part of our sustainable corporate policy.

As part of DZ BANK Group’s Corporate Responsibility Committee (CRC), we developed a Group-wide environmental and climate strategy in 2014 that sets standards for a compelling environmental policy, for the efficient incorporation of environmental protection in our organisation as well as appropriate processes.

To further advance environmental protection at DG HYP and keep track of the effects of our business activities for the environment, we systematically record and analyse our resources consumption. This makes it easy to identify where action needs to be taken, and where there is room for improvement. In accordance with our environmental policy, we derive environmental targets and fix the measures we need to take to meet them.
