Our social commitment in EMEA

"Helping people reach their potential" "UBS EMEA employees share their time and skills with their local communities. In 2015, this amounted to over 21,000 hours" Ulrich Koerner, President UBS EMEA

We support Education and Entrepreneurship because this is where we can make the biggest difference Last year thousands of young people in London improved their educational attainment and employability skills with our support.

3,808 UBS EMEA employees volunteered in the community last year "I was predicted a C but my Spanish language mentor said don't settle for that – so I decided to go for an A – and he said why not an A* - and that's what I got!"

UBS has received many awards for its community program UBS's Hakan Habip was recognised as one of Turkey's first '100 Changemakers' by the prestigious Sabanci Foundation for his support for UBS partner charity BKD Science Heroes

For over 30 years, UBS has worked to overcome disadvantage in our local communities by supporting education and entrepreneurship. In EMEA we do this by funding a small number of long-term community partners, and through the commitment and skills of our people who contributed over 20,000 hours to the community in 2015.
