DZ BANK is committed to democracy, tolerance, equal opportunities and human rights. These are in keeping with the cooperative values that are at the heart of our company: Mutuality, partnership, and social responsibility. 

As a central institution for the cooperative banks in Germany, we play a key role in ensuring a functioning financial system. We are conscious of our particular responsibility to customers, business partners, shareholders, employees, and society, and so the matter of which commercial activities we focus on and how we run these activities is of great importance.

By signing up to the United Nations Global Compact in 2008, we committed ourselves to ten universally accepted principles covering human rights, labor standards, the environment, and the fight against corruption. These principles form a binding frame of reference for our practices.
