Logo Sustainability Code Signatory

The Sustainability Code is a voluntary standard for reporting on sustainability aspects. It describes minimum requirements for sustainability communication and thus provides a framework for reporting on non-financial performance. The Sustainability Code is supervised by the German Council for Sustainable Development (Rat für Nachhaltige Entwicklung). The goal is to promote the concept of sustainability in society and the economy and make the sustainability performance of companies comparable. The Council for Sustainable Development works on behalf of the Federal Government of Germany.

Commerzbank released a declaration of conformity to the Sustainability Code in 2013. Thus the Bank provides transparency and comparability regarding its engagement for sustainability. Reporting by the Sustainability Code allows for a clear assessment of our sustainability performance by private clients and investors.

The current declaration (PDF, 2.3 MB) relates to the reporting year 2019. The declaration also covers the National Action Plan on Economics and Human Rights (NAP).
