UBS and the environment - Protecting our future
Environmental and social risk management
UBS applies a risk framework to all transactions, products, services and activities in order to identify, assess and manage environmental and social risks.
Environmental and social (including human rights) risks are broadly defined as the possibility of UBS suffering reputational or financial harm from transactions, products, services or activities such as lending, capital raising, advisory services or investments that involve a party associated with environmentally or socially sensitive activities. For products, services and activities identified as having significant environmental and social risk potential, procedures and tools for the timely identification, assessment, escalation and monitoring of such risks are applied and integrated into standard risk, compliance and operations processes.
The products, services, information and/or materials contained within these web pages may not be available for residents of certain jurisdictions. Please consult the sales restrictions relating to the products or services in question for further information.
