At UBS, corporate responsibility means 'doing the right thing' - both now and in the future.
This applies to our responsibility as an organization and our behavior as individuals. It also means that our products and services support our clients in addressing today's societal challenges and achieving their (financial) goals at the same time.
We understand that to be taken seriously as a responsible corporate citizen takes time, and that a solid track record is crucial.
