The results of our efforts are also reflected in our performance in sustainability ratings and rankings as well as through consideration in corresponding indices.
The external view of our sustainability performance
Major rating agencies for sustainability are regularly rating Commerzbank Aktiengesellschaft with regard to our sustainability performance. Commerzbank is also listed in important rankings and indices on a recurring basis.
Ratings and rankings are always based on individual calculations and methodologies, which makes it difficult to compare scores and results. Ratings also focus on different areas of sustainability. Depending on the rating/ranking, there is for instance a greater focus on climate protection or social issues. At the same time, we welcome the further development of standards in line with scientific findings and regulatory requirements. We pursue the goal of constantly improving our results.
