Sustainability Strategy

Sustainability has been an integral part of our corporate strategy since 2020

Our goals for a sustainable future

We support our customers in their sustainable transformation. At the same time, we lead by example by setting ourselves the goal of achieving net zero greenhouse gas emissions in banking operations by 2040.

Identification of our strategic sustainability issues

In spring 2022, Commerzbank conducted a materiality analysis to determine which topics are material for the company today and in the future. The results of the materiality analysis also serve as the basis for our sustainability reporting.
