On 2.09.2013, DZ BANK AG undertook to comply with the German Sustainability Code. The German Sustainability Code makes the sustainability performance of companies visible in a database, and transparent and comparable on a more binding basis.

The taking on of corporate social responsibility is a central part of DZ BANK AG’s business model. Loan applications are assessed systematically for relevant sustainability risks using a comprehensive sustainability checklist as well as sector-specific principles. The Equator Principles have been applied in the area of project finance since the start of 2013.
