What we do for our stakeholders - fostering sustainability and long-term value
Sustainable performance is one of the three principles that guide our work at UBS.
We provide our clients with financial advice as well as the right products and services to support them in addressing societal issues
We actively engage our employees in the successful execution of UBS and Society, including through sustainability-related training and awareness raising activities and employee volunteering
We engage our investors on environmental, social and governance (ESG) topics such as corporate culture or climate change
Our management of environmental and human rights matters
The proper management of our own environmental footprint and our supply chain are essential proof points of doing business in a sustainable manner. This is also true of our comprehensive management of environmental and social risks (ESR). We enforce our in-house environmental and responsible supply chain management, and our ESR standards and management firm-wide.
