"UBS APAC shows exceptional commitment to the well-being of local communities. In 2013, 44% of APAC staff volunteered, which was double the global average. In total, our region volunteered almost 28,000 hours."

Our employee and community affairs programs in Asia Pacific focus on educational and entrepreneurship projects across the 13 locations where we operate in the region.

UBS has a strong tradition of volunteerism in Asia Pacific. In 2013, over 3,000 employees in the region volunteered almost 28,000 hours.  Our employees in the region participate in activities such as matched-giving schemes, direct cash donations to selected organizations, employee volunteering, and disaster relief efforts. Beyond philanthropic contributions, we provide our partners with in-kind support such as skill-based volunteering, pro-bono assistance and donations of equipment and resources.

UBS has long term partnerships with 60 community groups across the region, with the aim of contributing to the well-being of these communities.
