In our dealings with these clients and with all our business partners, we apply the principles of fairness and professionalism. Our sustainable, client-focused way of doing business is designed to achieve highest client satisfaction. Our products, services and advice are designed to meet our promise of fairness, professionalism, responsibility and sustainability, and are audited against that promise. The transparency of our processes and easy to understand products and services are equally important values as respect and accountability in our dealings with each other. In 2009, for example, we founded the client advisory council. It helps to continuously improve the products, services and advice offered by the bank to the private clients.
As far back as the 1980s, Commerzbank was developing sustainability strategies for the age of renewable energies.
