Social Investments: Creating opportunity

Helping people build self-supporting structures is the basis of our social commitment in all regions of the world in which we operate.

We support people who live in challenging social and economic conditions to become independent of assistance and to shape their own lives and future as individually and independently as possible. With our projects to fight poverty, we focus on strengthening local social structures in a sustainable way. Our acknowledged expertise as a global financial institution enables us to create opportunities for many people: as a lender, we have already given 110 microfinance institutions access to capital. In turn, these institutions issue microloans to people to improve their quality of life. Moreover, with our ad-hoc donations, we provide quick, unbureaucratic support for relief efforts in disaster areas. And, lastly, we encourage employees to support our initiatives as corporate volunteers and are proud that so many accept this commitment.
