UBS and Society UBS and Society

Learn more about UBS our general commitment to society, how we support our clients and our communities.

We aim to be a leader in sustainability in the financial industry. This requires focusing on the long term and working to provide consistent returns to our stakeholders. It also requires moving beyond the commitment of doing no harm, to one that promotes common good by being proactive, purposeful and accountable.

Our key program in this regard is UBS and Society – a cross-divisional, umbrella platform covering all our activities and capabilities in sustainable investing and philanthropy, environmental and human rights policies that govern client and supplier relationships, managing our own environmental footprint, as well as our firm's community investment.

We implement the UBS and Society program through the three pillars of how we do business, how we support our clients and how we support our communities.
