For us, sustainability means that the success of entrepreneurial activity is not only based on growth and profitability, but must also focus on responsibility toward the environment and the social environment. We are committed to this idea and work together with our colleagues to further develop our sustainable corporate culture.
Everyone at Fondsdepot Bank is called upon to contribute their potential and actively engage in actions related to sustainability. We take responsibility - towards colleagues, Fondsdepot Bank, society and the environment. In our Sustainability Forum, founded in 2019, all employees have the opportunity to participate. In this circle, which consists of members from various departments and hierarchical levels, guiding principles were already decided in 2019 to guide all measures at Fondsdepot Bank. In regular meetings, ongoing actions are steered and new ideas are discussed.
In addition to our own commitment, the EU Disclosure Regulation, which will come into force on March 10, 2021, additionally requires us to publish an assessment of sustainability risks for Fondsdepot Bank. You can read about the risks we have identified for ourselves and how we deal with them here.
Fondsdepot Bank makes sure that its words about CR are followed by deeds. Thanks to the great commitment of our employees, we were able to roll out several charitable campaigns in the course of the last years.
