Our climate change commitment
Climate change is one of the most significant challenges of our time. The world’s key environmental and social challenges, such as population growth, energy security, loss of biodiversity and access to drinking water and food are all closely intertwined with climate change. This makes the transition to a low-carbon economy vital.
We recognize that financial institutions are increasingly expected to play a key role in the transition to a low-carbon economy and, we are determined to support our clients in preparing for success in an increasingly carbon-constrained world. As one of the leading wealth management firms worldwide, and the leading universal bank in Switzerland backed by a top asset management business and a client-centered investment bank, our climate change strategy focuses on the following areas. It is in these areas where we believe we can make the greatest contribution to the transition towards a low-carbon economy: risk management; investment, finance and research, in-house operations; and engagement and disclosure.
