In implementing ESG in its business and decision-making processes, NORD/LB CBB is guided by the following initiatives and guidelines:
As a subsidiary of NORD/LB - a signatory of the UN Global Compact - NORD/LB CBB, as a company in the NORD/LB Group, is guided by its ten principles on human rights, labor and environmental protection, and anti-corruption to promote sustainable development. These principles are central to the implementation of the 17 Sustainable Developments Goals (SDG), which were defined by the UN in 2015 in Agenda 2030 as a world contract for a fairer and more sustainable future, and are intended to serve as a compass for meeting the challenges of the 21st century.
As a subsidiary of NORD/LB - a signatory to the UNEP FI declaration - NORD/LB CBB is aligned with the UNEP Finance Initiative and is thus committed to contribute to the sustainable development of the economy and society and to promote forward-looking environmental management. In its strategic work program, the UNEP FI focuses on the development of innovative approaches to issues related to finance and ESG and highlights, among other things, the complex of topics of climate change, investment, real estate, sustainability management, and reporting.
Corporate environmental management is a central element of ESG management. NORD/LB CBB is integrated into the environmental management of the NORD/LB Group and strives to constantly reduce its environmental impact while at the same time lowering its energy and resource costs. This strengthens NORD/LB CBB's position as an ecologically responsible company.
As a subsidiary of NORD/LB - a signatory to the Diversity Charter - NORD/LB CBB is guided by the principles for recognizing and valuing diversity in the company. The signatories of the Diversity Charter are to create a working environment that is free of prejudice. All employees should experience appreciation - regardless of gender, nationality, ethnic origin, religion or ideology, disability, age, sexual orientation, and identity - in a climate of acceptance and mutual trust.
