With a bank, most people think about investing money and applying for loans. But a bank also works with the invested money. Through every decision and every cent of it, banks create a leverage effect that has a far greater impact on our environment than decisions made by other companies. Bank Austria is aware of this responsibility. We are therefore increasingly working on investments in renewable energy and sustainable projects for the benefit of our environment. You can actively support us in this by choosing sustainable investment and credit products. Because: Your money can save the environment.

1 The Austrian Ecolabel was awarded to the "GoGreen-Konto", the "MegaCard GoGreen-Jugendkonto", the  "GoGreen-Studentenkonto" and the "GoGreen-Businesskonto" by the Federal Ministry for Climate Action, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Infrastructure and Technology (BMK) because environmental and social criteria are considered in addition to economic criteria in the projects that are financed with these current account deposits. The Ecolabel guarantees that these criteria and their implementation are appropriate for selecting suitable projects. This was reviewed by an independent body. The awarding of the Ecolabel is not an economic assessment and has no relevance for the future performance of the financial product.
