Improving the SAM sustainability rating
To ensure stable environmental conditions, we take responsibility in permanently improving our environmental performance. In the business year, we implemented specific annual measures for the project “Climate-Neutral by 2012,” such as buying renewable energy in Germany, Italy and Switzerland, and have regionally adapted our global Sustainability Management System, based on the ISO 14001 certification procedure. As one of 13 partners, we have joined DII GmbH – a company that drives the realization of the innovative “Desertec” solar energy project.
Since 2009, our employees have access to a Web-based learning application on Deutsche Bank’s intranet. This application explains the fundamental principles of commercial sustainability based on the UN Global Compact principles, which have been firmly anchored in our guidelines for some years. It also shows examples of how our employees can act in an ecologically responsible manner in their daily business lives.
