Bank Austria as a pioneer

Generating value for the benefit of the community, our customers, employees, shareholders, and current and future generations: this is our mission and our identity. The Environmental Management System allows us to take changed circumstances into consideration and to reach appropriate decisions.

At the same time, it gives us a unique opportunity to intervene more deeply and effectively in economic and social life through our business decisions and presence.
 

Bank Austria’s active environmental management

An environmental management network was established in order to ensure a sustainable Environmental Management System at Bank Austria. This guarantees the coordination and implementation of environmental issues across all banking areas. The appointment of a steering committee underlines the importance that we give to this issue.

But how will this work in practice?

The international standard ISO 14001 is - apart from the EMAS regulation - the world’s most important guideline when it comes to what corporate environmental management should consist of. Following this standard, environmental protection is systematically entrenched into a company’s management.

Thanks to the commitment of our employees, over the last few years Bank Austria has continually improved its Environmental Management System, which is already ISO 14001-certified.
 

You can find more information on ISO 14004 here.

We confirm our commitment to promoting sustainable development and to reaching the targets set by the Kyoto Protocol. Furthermore, we have been working together on various initiatives over the years.

Not only do we comply with the applicable environmental legislation, but we have voluntarily committed ourselves to participate in initiatives and programmes such as UNEP, ISO 14001, klima:aktiv and Equator Principles.
